Frustrated with the Boss- Homework

Hi Brooke,

I have worked there for 12 years
I am a department head
The company is privately owned
My team is consistently Successful
He has never worked anywhere else

He picks on my team
He thinks they are dinosaurs
His views are not acceptable in most work places
This is all he knows.

So, my view is that my opinions about him are causing me to feel like he dislikes my team. I have to not let HIS OPINIONS cause me to feel bad as they are just his opinions and are not true. I cannot control how he thinks, I can only control how I feel about the things that he says to me. I have to let his words roll off my back, and just continue to lead my team to success and accept that he may never say the things that I would like to hear.

Am I close?
