Thanks for sharing Kristi. In another comment you mentioned you work from home, it is important to set office hours so you aren't always talking about work. Keeping clear and open communication during work hours should help. Also, make sure you have clear goals and performance measures in place for your role. This will allow you to participate in tracking your productivity.

Having a toxic boss is definitely a challenge, one that far too many people have to face. Although it seems the majority of your workplace issues need to be addressed by your employers rather than you, check out a series we wrote last year – “Touchdown With a Bad Boss.” You’ll find some real life examples of individuals working for a bad boss and how they overcame their toxic situation. Good luck!
