The Million Dollar Career Series: Horrible Bosses? Think Again! w/Robert Houghton


The recipe to a million dollar career isn’t easy, but it is simple. Mostly, the right attitude is the key ingredient to success and keeping a positive attitude can be easier said than done, especially if we’re clashing with our leaders. 

How can we get better at dealing with bosses we don’t agree with or who just aren’t seeing our value? Should we be switching up our approach or is it better to cut our losses and seek employment elsewhere? 

In this episode, Founder and President of MR Fairfax, Robert Houghton and I discuss how to stay optimistic when we’re not seeing eye-to-eye with our leaders.

Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode 

  • The danger of bad-mouthing a bad boss: Interviewers love asking potential recruits about their current leaders. The question is, how should we respond if we’re unhappy in our present situations? 
  • How to shift our perspectives in a positive direction: Are we spending more time thinking about what we want to achieve, or what we’re unhappy about? 
  • Why we need to connect with our leaders: How can we build personal relationships with our leaders? Is doing so even appropriate?
