Ask Shannon: What do you do when your boss cuts you down in front of your colleagues?
What to do when you boss cuts you in middle of your colleagues?
Thanks for your question
That is a difficult place to be in. In life the most we can do and the best we can be is to be our genuine self. Be honest with your boss. Let your boss know you work best when you are not being belittled. Tell him or her you would rather receive constructive criticism in private. You may want to deliver this message in letter form or in an email. Writing helps deliver a message with less of an emotional charge. You can also have someone proof read it for you. Lastly try not to take the criticism too personally. Most of what people do and say is more about them than it is about you.
