How to Handle the Silent Treatment

While some supervisors are motivating, reliable, and well-intentioned, some supervisors can be close-minded, reserved, and difficult to communicate with. Kayleen Schaefer from the College Journal addresses the question “What to do when a boss gives you the silent treatment?”

Question: My boss doesn’t communicate with me. I sit three feet away, and she e-mails me about everything. I admire her drive, but she doesn’t include me in meetings or have confidence in me to do things. The company’s owner asked if he could get us an assistant and have me take on more responsibility. She said no. How should I handle this?
