I appreciate all the knowledges, wisdoms and suggestions people shares in their write ups about dealing bad bosses, but if you are having an ill luck (as I was), you may fall in the hand of a boss who can psychologically pound you, thrash you and make you into bits and pieces. He could behave like a real ‘satan’ and throw you in enormous trouble. Particularly if you have self-respect and not ready to compromise it for anything. Your damage can range from mild to severe depending upon the authority and power of your boss.

More people should also be trained and aware of the practices of managing up towards the bosses, not just being managed down from them as is typical

Thanks for sharing, Debasis

Thats correct.At the same time I believe that bosses are also needs to be trained to be 'boss'. As Welch said :“When you were made a leader, you weren’t given a crown, you were given the responsibility to bring out the best in others.”

Great point-- sometimes people are moved up the chain of command as a next step because they're good at their current job, but that really doesn't necessarily mean they will be successful in a managerial role.
