Business writer Margie Warrell at Forbes recommended, "If you know you have a boss who’s disorganized, then help him to be on top of things rather than whining about his lack of organizational skills.
If you know your boss is often late to meetings, offer to kick off the next meeting for him.
You never know who's watching that could help you rise in your career.
Warrell pointed out, "While it may be easy to succumb to resentment or resignation and mentally check out of your job, doing so not only undermines your own integrity but it can put you at risk of being branded as whiner, a slacker, or both." You're not doing yourself any favors by retaliating in that way.

It might sound counter-intuitive to support someone's negative qualities, but by doing so you'll only make the situation easier for yourself.
