My Boss Hates Me - Now What Do I Do?

By Dr. Tom Ayala

Recorded November 20, 2020 | Recorded Sessions are not eligible for NBCC Contact Hours

Career management is a lifelong process. As employees progress through their career journey things don’t always work out to their benefit. There is an important, and not very often discussed result of employees finding themselves in an outgroup situation. This webinar will address known characteristics of how this relational dynamic impacts the safety, citizenship, engagement, and psychological wellbeing of impacted employees.

Attendees will learn:

  1. The Leader-Member Exchange theory and how it exists for every career counseling client
  2. The Leadership Making Model and how it defines the quality of the relationship between employees and their immediate supervisor.
  3. Recent organizational research on how organizational outgroups are impacted by their status
  4. How the following psychological constructs integrate into the conversation and how they directly apply to a career development. They include:
    1. Alfred Adler’s “ideal self”
    2. involuntary defeat strategy
    3. learned helplessness
    4. locus of control
    5. maladaptive embedded childhood schema
    6. social learning

Scholarly references will be provided.
