Oh? I also have a distrusting, controlling boss who fuels my anxiety both in and out of work. This sounds promising!
Wait.. What? This is basically a “Scrum” standup meeting format used in “agile”, a classic micromanagement tool in software development and the tech industry at large (where you are punished/face consequences for not attending or not having anything to share at these mandatory meetings). This is just micromanaging yourself on behalf of your boss! This isn’t ending or changing the controlling behavior; this is only reinforcing it, increasing expectations of you with no added benefit.
Case in point:
Great fucking job, now you’ve got managers beginning to think that this is a good practice to mandate. As soon as something optional in your relationship with your boss turns into something mandatory, it’s bad news - for you.
Wasn’t the entire point to lessen work anxiety and reduce your boss’ demands, not make both of them worse?
This is why business and work advice blogs are fucking terrible. They’re almost always bootlickers who publicize bad ideas that make working more stressful and employers more authoritarian.
