I hate the word “hate”. Ok – let me rephrase that statement. I strongly dislike the word, hate. There are times when your boss really doesn’t like what you have done and they may even use “that” word.
Hate expresses a very strong feeling of opposition. What is the best way to address that response to their disappointment? First, listen and think, then respond. It is incredibly easy to respond to strong emotion with equally strong emotion, but mostly that doesn’t end well.
It’s inevitable that things aren’t always going to work out the way everyone hopes. How you respond is your choice.
