Unhappy at Work? Try Selling Your Boss

"As a manager, I think you should help them [employees] get a better job, not the other way around," he said.

Highley said that if his staff did send him a job referral, he would worry that he was being a bad boss and that they really were trying to get rid of him.

"If my staff said I think this job would be quite good for you," Highley said, "it would actually upset me."

Ronnie Jones, a manager at the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers in New York, had personal reasons for taking a pass on the sell-your-boss idea.

"My boss and I have been together for 30 years," she said. "We're almost like sisters. It's good."

But she didn't reject the concept outright. If faced with a bad boss, Jones said she would try to sell her — and fast.

"In a New York minute," she said.
