Working is usually not a likable thing.
But if the salary is good, we might as well put up with it.
However, if you unfortunately have a very difficult boss, then it is another story.
Sometimes, you do come across that kind of boss who keeps giving verbal consent
, but never taking the commitment seriously.
You may have already met this kind of boss. At first they agreed to let you push forward a new project, then somehow they changed their minds and acted as if they had never agreed to it.
Or, your boss may never fulfill what he has promised you and stop mentioning it at all.
The results can be imagined, your previous efforts may go to waste, and your expectations may be failed.
This kind of boss might be forgetful, or there could be a problem with his character.
If you have this kind of boss, then you can try to do this:
At each important point, confirm with them the agreed things, keep them updated on the progress, then confirm the direction again, and wait for them to give a new promise before you continue.
Moreover, it is best not to talk with your boss in private, but let some other colleagues participate in the conversation.
For example, if you communicate in emails, you may copy it to all the people involved.
If it is a verbal communication, then you may choose somewhere someone else is present to have the conversation.
