Record and Minimize Your Interactions

As much as possible it's best if you lessen your interaction with your gaslighting boss but during conversations try to have witnesses around and use emails or other written documentation to recap conversations and agreements.

Having a real-time record of your interactions will make it harder for your boss to question your sanity and backpedal on agreements. Moreover, seek out mentors and actively look to build networks and build relationships with different leaders.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Gaslighting is a covert type of behavior that is adept at undermining other people's self-esteem, confidence, and sense of reality.

  • Do whatever you can in order to create distance between your mental well-being and your boss's abusive behavior.
  • If possible you can try to externalize their behavior instead of ruminating on them. The way people treat you is a statement of who they are as a person, not a statement...

Make sure that you're actually being gaslit by your boss and they're not just being jerks. Many gaslighters lie and deny things that they said - even in writing.

There are also other ways to escape your toxic boss without having to leave your company.

It's critical to have a strong support system by your side whenever we're dealing with emotionally challenging situations.

Before confronting or escalating this issue with management, do your homework first. Have a clear game plan for what you want to achieve from that conversation.
