How to Forgive your Boss
Or Anyone Who Has Done You Wrong
In her twenty years of coaching employees and executives in leadership and team development, Dr. Tammy Dewar has often guided her clients through the stormy seas of office dysfunction. During the course of this work, she’s heard about many bosses. Sadly, most of the stories have been negative. There have been mean bosses, bullying bosses, unfair bosses, unethical bosses, cheap bosses, inept bosses…the list goes on and on. In fact, one of the main themes she’s encountered in her work is that it is bosses who are making lives miserable. But the day she asked a group of disgruntled workers what forgiveness for their errant boss might look like — a light went on. As a self-described “recovering festerer” herself, Dr. Dewar began to encourage her clients to apply a series of simple, practical techniques that would free them from the oppression of uselessly held grudges, and How to Forgive Your Boss was born. This lively, breezy, and eminently helpful manual on reconfiguring negative thought patterns into positive ones will most certainly be a great help to anyone who’s ever had a bad boss. But its intelligent practices can also be applied to any negative, counter-productive thinking that’s creating heavy baggage to drag around.
Tammy Dewar holds a Ph.D. in adult learning from the University of Calgary and is a Professional Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation. She and her husband, Dave Whittington, are partners in Calliope Learning, a consulting company, which specializes in leadership and team development, executive and team coaching, and whole-systems facilitation and coaching. She also teaches in Business Schools and Executive Education Centres for several universities in western Canada. She won the Royal Roads University’s 2007 Teaching Award, and in 2014 became the recipient of its Coaching/Mentoring Award. For more than twenty years it has been her passion to encourage and challenge people to transcend whatever limitations they think they may have. She and her husband live in Victoria, BC.
