This piece of advice is near to my heart due to a situation a family member is in. He is the "manager" that does not have the respect from one of his employees due to something outside of his control.
If your managers annoys you because you don't agree with their personal choices or think they don't deserve the position, it may be best to just let those feelings go. Some specific examples would be:
- Their choice in spouse
- The way they raise their children
- Their age
- Where they went to school
- The way they do their hair
Learn to appreciate how they got to where they are and respect the position, even if you can't figure out how to respect the person.
