Fan Mail Friday #123 | I Hate My Boss

Time for Fan Mail Friday, where we’ll be answering your questions and dropping some knowledge and feedback to help you kick the weekend off right. If you’re new to The Art of Charm Podcast, this isn’t a great place to start. Most of our content is more in-depth and longer format. Listen to recent guests Christian Picciolini, Jack Barsky, Chase Hughes, and Aaron Walker for a better idea of our regular programming.

Also make sure to check out our Best Of picks or the Fundamentals Toolbox episodes. There, we’ve got the fundamentals of body language and nonverbal communication, attraction, negotiation, networking, and everything else we teach here at The Art of Charm.

Liz Dolan (@SSLiz) and Larry Seal (@IHateMyBossShow) from the I Hate My Boss podcast join us for this Fan Mail Friday to answer your work and career-related questions, so let’s cut to it! In this episode:

  • Company loyalty vs. personal goals when a change in ownership is pending.
  • Have you outgrown your “negaholic” friends at work when they’re always complaining about the job you love?
  • Hey, ambitious but unfulfilled intern! Should you stay or should you go?
  • How do you reasonably cope with an unmotivated boss with divided attention — when that boss is your dad and his attention is divided by family medical issues?
  • What can you do to “forget” your nerves and be confident around your boss? (Warning: advice may vary depending on the business culture of your country.)
  • It’s tough being at a small company you really like when you have to report to a “leader” who doesn’t take their role seriously. What are your options?
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at [email protected]!
  • Check out Jordan’s (@TheArtofCharmother show: The Forbes List, and Jason’s (@jpdefother show: Grumpy Old Geeks.

Jordan Harbinger has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped -- twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
