Conclusion

Frantic managers (see Table 13-1) become so hyper during the course of life and work that they fail to pay adequate attention to how their actions impact others and inadvertently step on your prerogatives and boundaries. Their lack of attention to colleagues’ boundaries does harm, but far less harm than bullies who seek to intimidate, or ruthless managers who have a goal and are willing to destroy you if you get in the way, or volatile managers who periodically strike out angrily in response to frustration.

Whether they are your superior or your subordinate, you can often ameliorate the situation by gently pointing out the negative impact of their behavior and by helping to reduce their work load. Frantic individuals often have an underlying anxiety disorder or ADHD. They are always highly stressed. Treatment of the underlying anxiety disorder with therapy and/or medication, and of the ADHD with medication, often leads to marked improvement.
