How to make your boss like you

The November 2010 issue of Personal Money magazine has an article titled "9 Ways To Get Into Your Boss' Good Books" which I believe is very advisable for all employee to read, understand and practise in order to excel in their career.

The 9 tips to let your boss like you are:

  • Make your boss look good
  • Understand your boss
  • Understand your boss' expectations and do more than is expected of you
  • Provide solutions rather than problems
  • Working independently on the job
  • Make your time count
  • Communicate with your boss
  • Watch your code of conduct
  • Showing positivism in your life and work
Beside that, the following are something usually done by employee to please their boss, but might not work at all:
  • Trying to look productive but nothing is happening
  • Making your boss look good in the wrong way
  • Tripod-ding and apple-polishing
  • Working overly independent of your boss
For detailed explanation of all the above points, grab yourself a copy of November 2010 Personal Money magazine and read through page 59-61.
