One of the worst situations to get caught up in is a he said/she said scenario with no proof. Smith recommends documenting every electronic, verbal and face-to-face interaction between you and your boss. â€œWhen it comes to management issues, documentation is king because it can show a pattern of behavior,â€ she says. â€œIt gives you recollection of issues as opposed to winging it.â€ Youâ€™ll want to document key like any proactive steps you've taken to discuss your concerns with your boss; instances where your boss acted inappropriately to others; and examples of how your bossâ€™ leadership style negatively impacted the companyâ€™s progress. â€œIneffective leadership that causes loss of productivity can be translated into revenue and costs. So it is worthy of documentation to show that pattern of behavior.â€ Furthermore, Smith suggests saving messages in your company email and forwarding them to your personal account so they donâ€™t disappear from the server.
