Who doesn’t wish to do a great work with their bosses?
At the same time, bosses are human too. And there are good bosses and bad bosses…they are a package.
So, how do you ensure that you succeed with your boss, and together, you both succeed too?
While there are a number of conventional ways, here are some hopefully different ways you can try too:
Don’t let your boss’s mood bug you – you be who you are and continue excelling in what you are good at
Provide advance notice if you are going to take time off from work, even if this is a short one
Get in before your boss does so he sees you the first thing he enters office – builds confidence and a feeling that you are reliable
Make him or her look and feel great
Pick your battles with your boss rather than confronting him or her on everything
Take the initiative to set up monthly meetings
Make requests/solutions instead of complaints
Make your boss’s life easier
Complete the tasks everyone forgets
Highlight relevant industry innovations
Read a lot & share useful stuff
