    Hey all! This is definitely more of a workplace structure question, but I’m curious if any of you have experience with coworkers that micromanage you. I work at a new product startup , and the team consists of me, my boss, his sister (SIS) and parents- full on family business. I work on the marketing side of things, and SIS works on social media. This is what’s making work so difficult- my boss’ sister is constantly asking me to do things how she wants them, and anything I’ve proposed to her has been completely ignored. She isn’t bad at her job, but I think in her mind, she believes she is right about everything. And not to be narcassistic, but I went to school for marketing and advertising, and am desperately in love with my job here and feel that I am following the correct practices. SIS never had interest in social media before, and doesn’t plan on staying more than 2 years with the company. How do I talk to my boss or SIS about this? I hate conflict, don’t want to step on any toes or taint any relationships with this family. I’m starting to get a lot of anxiety from this situation, and don’t know how to fix it. Any thoughts/advice? – by hq overview granolagirl808 – –
