Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss lack of eye contact.
My boss looks at others when they talk, but she looks away from me.
Signed, Feel I Don’t Count
Dear Feel I Don’t Count:
You are right to feel that eye contact speaks very loudly. We communicate with our body language and we believe what the body says more than words. Most of the nonverbal the rules about how we should communicate with others are unwritten.Your brief question doesn’t provide enough information to explain what has been or what is going on between your boss and you, but it does tell us that your communication with your boss is impoverished. That is to say, you two likely don’t talk enough to each other and when you do, you feel it isn’t friendly.
