I am a High-C (I am a Civil Engineer after all), with strong S tendencies, and am having challenges dealing with my High-D skip boss.
He exhibits all of the typical D behaviors, including being demanding, forceful, and impatient. It is really frustrating when he tells me when to make phone calls or sets deadlines for projects he is not directly involved in. He recently reprimanded me when I did not take a telephone call (I was in an O3 with a DR). His biggest focus seems to be billable time, which I understand given the current economy.
I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions on how I can adjust my behavior to better deal with this skip boss. I realize I will not change him. Thank you all in advance for your help.
