How to make a horrible boss your ally — a former Navy SEAL explains | CNBC

Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jocko Willink understands what it’s like to have a bad boss. He’s had his share but was also a micromanager himself on the battlefield, he explains in his new book “The Dichotomy of Leadership.”

Given his unique perspective, Willink offers one key piece of advice: Don’t focus on what you wish you could change about your boss. Instead, focus on being your boss’s ally. “Great boss or horrible boss, my goal is to have a great relationship with [that person],” says Willink to CNBC Make It.

Whatever you do, keep your relationship with your boss top of mind. The strength of your relationship with your boss will shape the work you and your team can get done. “What I’m trying to do is build a relationship,” he says, “so that I can effectively go out and accomplish the mission with my team.”
