Empathy and teamwork

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.

If your boss or work environment is abusive, leave immediately.

If you've been at your job for more than six months, try to figure out the cause of your dread.

In a situation where you are sure you want to quit, put your energy into growing. Take advantage of the situation by, for example, learning how not to lead or how to work well as a team.

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.

A lack of fulfillment at the workplace might be due to a misalignment between your purpose and your job.
