Managing Your Managers’ Stress Levels

Evil HR Lady

Business is hard and you need to make money. Sometimes things happen outside of your control or a new competitor pops up and what was easy before now becomes complicated. Lots of business owners put pressure on their managers to reach goals, right? Ask — no, demand — that they work hard, stretch and, if they must, put pressure on their team. That’s how a lot of businesses operate, but there’s a problem: stressed-out managers are bad for everybody at the company.

my arrogant coworker is trying to mentor me, but I’m his team lead

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I recently found out I’ll be moved into a team lead position at my job, leading three others and an intern I’m mentoring. It’s a non-managerial role, and it hasn’t started yet, but there’s been a lot of planning and prep work involved. I’ve been with the company for under a year and had two years of professional experience in our field before this.

my staff is selling multi-level marketing products at work, my coworker makes R-rated noises, and more

Ask A Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. Staff selling multi-level marketing products at work. I manage a team of seven for a small advertising agency. We’re located in a rural-ish area. Our HQ is in a major city about seven hours away. I got promoted to manager after our last manager retired. I’m younger than most of my team (I’m 33) but we’ve all gotten along so well in the past that I’m at a loss for what to do with this issue.

my coworkers treat me like I’m not very smart

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: This question is inspired by the question in your recent post about coworkers attacking people over grammar. I had a really emotional response to the post and wanted to ask you this. How do you learn to manage in a job where everyone thinks you are stupid and/or uneducated? I know those characteristics are different, but in my job they are very closely interlinked. I’m the only person on staff with just one, lower class degree. Most people have two or three.

my coworkers say my boss is in love with me

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work in an office. There are about five other individuals in my division that report to the same manager. This manager is several years younger than me (I’m in my mid-30s), and he is about 20 years younger than my colleagues. My colleagues have, and continue to, question his authority due to his age and relative inexperience in the industry. My manager and I get along fairly well and although we aren’t friends, we’re friendly.
