How do you deal with someone in a position of power who wants you to fail?
I wish I knew the answer to that. :/
In my last job, I ignored her. In every single incident. I did not return her calls, her messages, etc. I always dealt directly with the owner. And I told him I would not deal with her, she was a mental case. It was his wife. haha
I think it depends on the situation. If its in a job, then quit and find another one.
I hope you are a praying woman, if so Pray for them think about this, someone in a position of power who would want anyone else to fail, has got to be a really wounded person, when you have to role of being in a power position, you should help pull others up with you, if you have any compassion. pray for them they have to be unhappy.
Document everything,especially all the work successes you have,in case they try to get you fired. Is there any way to make this person your friend?
Document your successes and your failures - how you turned them around or learned from them. If this person brings anything up then you are prepared.
