Bad Pandemic Boss: Follow These Sanity Strategies

So how do you find a cure for this side-effect of COVID-19? According to Forbes, there are six strategies you can use to preserve your sanity.

For example, monitor your own triggers and judgements. If your boss isn’t very pleasant chances are you’ve picked up on it and are tempted to return the favor. But avoid taking the bait. Be respectful, and if there is some type of conflict, don’t talk about it with others. People know what’s going on and you will be the bigger person.
