They are considered rational, distanced and formal, often seem harsh and are less in need of harmony: German managers do not have the best international reputation. But not every boss is a heartless impulse when dealing with his employees. Fortunately, because the professional environment also determines the health in the workplace. A small typology of different boss types helps to stay relaxed and fit in the workplace.

Stressed boss

Do you know this? Your boss has never had time and he laughed the last time two years ago on his debut. His choleric seizures are notorious and his favorite phrase is, "Am I just surrounded by idiots?" To be sure, your supervisor belongs in the category "stressed boss". "The biggest difficulty in dealing with such an executive is that problems are not discussed, because the boss feels such a conversation only as a disruption of the workflow," explains psychologist Frank Meiners of the DAK. "In dealing with such an executive only helps to keep calm and to provide as little attack surface." Anyone who shows nervousness and restlessness or who even seems to be self-aggravating, upsets the boss even more.

climber

It is hardly easier to deal with the type "newcomer". These bosses want to make a career at all costs and go to the emergency also about (colleagues) corpses. These power people come quite well as a "friend" or "buddy" therefore. They appreciate the internal competition among employees to build the right career mood, but then saw in the chairs of colleagues, who themselves could develop ambition and become the newcomer to the competition. "Keep your distance in such cases, work correctly and look for the solidarity of colleagues," advises DAK expert Meiners.

Control freaks

Working reliably, delivering clean results, and complying with agreements helps in dealing with so-called "control freaks". Executives, who always have a meticulously tidy desk and would like to do everything themselves, are not easy contemporaries. But they are more predictable than the newcomer. "They're fine when they feel their employees are giving them the important decisions, stick to the structured workflow and make clear goals," explains Meiners. However, problems arise for employees who start over because they might be considered a potential uncertainty factor by the inspector, as well as people who have creative ideas and like to work on their own responsibility.

impeller

Some employees have to deal with chiefs of the type "impeller". Those who willingly work overtime and provide positive statistics, turnover and return figures will soon be the best horse in the stable. But beware: "impellers" are constantly increasing the pace of work, because they are under enormous pressure to succeed.Phrases like: "Can you again ..." or "Today it can be late" are standard with them. Especially for employees who lack a certain routine, it is so fast difficult to differentiate themselves from the high standards. "If you feel that your demands are growing, ask for a factual discussion," advises psychologist Meiners. "You can certainly do a less important job to do the new, more challenging job."

competent

Always have an open ear for problems of any kind has only one boss type: the "competent". He always strives to find solutions together with the employees. Competent managers are characterized by their high level of specialist knowledge, their social "instinct" and their openness.
Not only do they keep an eye on the work and health of their employees, they also often praise. They love to be inspired by ideas created in a creative atmosphere.
