- Find out what is important to your boss and make it important to you.
If your boss is a big fan when it comes to deadlines, then do your best to get everything ahead of that all-important deadline!
- Make note of anything that you and your boss have in common.
From non-professional to professional related things. In general conversation find an opportunity to make your boss aware of your similar interest.
- Agree with your boss, more often than not, without compromising your own values.
This way when the two of you do disagree, your boss wont view it as disagreeing and more like a different outlook on it.
- Look for opportunities to make something happen.
There are always projects and assignments that others don’t have time to do. Find one that you can do and volunteer to do it! Your boss will appreciate it and remember it in the future.
- Help your boss.
Every boss has that one project that they never have time for and it stresses them out. This is where you in. Find out what project it is and complete it on your spare time, such as a day off. Since your boss hasn’t completed it, it is probably an important project so it won’t take much time for you complete it and your boss will be so happy that you have done it.
- Don’t be overly vocal when you disagree with something your boss has done. It will get back to your boss.
- Don’t be afraid to share your ideas with your boss, especially if they can help increase productivity or make someone’s job easier. Many times a good idea can add to your boss’ positive impression of you, thereby leading them to believe they are doing a good job themselves.
- Watch for the favours you ask off your boss. Constantly asking to leave early or calling in sick over little things starts to look like you are taking advantage of them.
- Communicate with your boss as often as possible.
