Let’s look at some things we can do to avoid becoming a workaholic and follow in the footsteps of our boss:

    • Make the limits clear : You have to make him see that if he sends a lot of work, your effectiveness may decrease. Only take on that job that you can carry out. Don’t compromise to look good.

  • Ask for advice : The person addicted to work, most likely has had to face a multitude of situations. Ask him for advice in those cases that you have doubts about how to carry out a task.
