How to deal with a blamer boss.

This kind of boss never accepts responsibility for their mistakes and blames others if something goes wrong.

How to deal with them

Indicate calmly and assertively to your boss that you won’t accept blame that isn’t due to you, Holburn advises. “Usually people will stop blaming you if you keep pointing it out to them.”

Do this without blaming anyone else or resorting to personal attacks. “Rather start working on a solution.” If this approach doesn’t work involve HR or senior management, Holburn advises.
