If you've been at your job for more than six months, try to figure out the cause of your dread.
When a boss is yelling at people or being short with them, talk to them behind closed doors and say, "Hey, you were really short with us in the meeting. Are you OK?" Try and get across that you think they're acting out of character and you want to check on them.
Remember that your boss is human too and want to feel heard and feel like they belong. Inquire about your boss as a human being, perhaps ask them what they did for the weekend. We don't know why they're bad leaders - they may be under pressure or don't realize they're bad.
We might be the most junior person in the organization, but we still work with people. We can help them to go home fulfilled, that they feel heard and that someone has their back.
When you commit yourself to be the leader you wish you had, you can contribute to building a strong subculture so that people will come to work and feel fulfilled. Hopefully, that will impact those around you. Keep in mind that, like any other relationship, this will take time.
Thinking that you don't need to find a fulfilling job because you'll find fulfillment elsewhere is like saying you don't have to love the person you marry because you can get that elsewhere. This idea will set you up for a rocky situation.
You will spend most of your time at work, so it's essential to find a job you enjoy doing.
