Look Before You Leap

With the employment picture showing some signs of life, you may be weighing the pros and cons of looking for a new job – especially if your current bad boss is causing you to “sizzle” with anger. However, it’s a good idea to really look thoroughly before you leap or you may jump right from the frying pan into the fire and end up with a TOT boss worse than your current one.

In my Psychology Today article, Is Now the Time to Leave Your Job? I examine some practical risks associated with quitting. The article also discusses some changes you can make in how you’re relating to your boss and gives some overall steps to consider before taking the plunge.

Naturally, I give some humorous suggestions of what NOT to do along with what to do. If you’re thinking that now is the time to cut and run, then take a little time out to read Is Now the Time to Leave Your Job? and carefully weigh your options (and have a few chuckles while you’re at it).
