How to deal with a boss who doesn’t value time?

In a corporate setup, we all are supposed to directly or indirectly report to a manager or a leader. In most of the cases, your immediate supervisor is responsible for making sure that the team is able to deliver results on time. But, what if your immediate manager is not at all serious about his position? What if he or she is always procrastinating? Don’t you think this will impact your performance in a way or no? Don’t you think it will have a negative impact on the team? Well, yes, definitely it will have. But, as they say  ‘you can’t change your boss’, so here some steps to deal with him or her without affecting your performance:

  • Try and stay calm

No matter how irritated you are with your manager’s behavior, you simply can’t be rude or arrogant with him or her. After all, we are all responsible for our actions and activities. So, try and stay calm and also positive. At the end of the day, if you are doing your work rightly, no one would be able to question you. Simply, because you will have a genuine answer to give when someone will point out your commitment levels. So, make sure you are on-time with your deliverables.

  • Talk to someone higher up if needed

Though, to an extent, you would be able to handle this situation on your own by doing your work correctly. Also, if your boss won’t be able to deliver work on time again and again then somebody will automatically question him or her. However, if the situation is becoming really tough to handle, and it has started to affect your performance as well then please go ahead and discuss it with someone higher than him or her. Just make sure that you convey your message in a positive manner.

  • Don’t learn from him or her

The worst that you can do for yourself is following him or her. Never do that! Instead, do the opposite! Always be punctual with your tasks, and maybe one day he or she might learn from you. Always refrain from spoiling your performance or reputation because of someone else. At the end of the day, you are getting paid for your work and he or she is getting paid for his or her work. So, make sure you are always honest with the company and your work!
