Avoiding the Trap the Bully has Set

When you are in a bad situation, and you know it should be much better than it is, it’s arrogant to operate as though conditions are as they should be. Arrogance invites conflict. Even though you’re right – circumstances should be better – the first step to improving conditions is to acknowledge the evidence. See things as they truly are.

Then take the smart tack: use your creativity and work to improve conditions. Lateral movement is often your friend in a bad situation. Going head to head or toe to toe is like trying to punch your way out of a cage.

I am not saying it's easy to do.
