How to make your boss love you
Find out what makes your boss likes and give it to him or her (a lot). Don’t assume that it’s details, or positive feedback or a daily Frappuccino. Be a detective and find out what the boss loves and provide regularly.
Think about who your end customer is. Instead of sending an email that just pleases your boss, think about if this is something they are going to give to their boss, to the CFO or to an end-user.
Be at work before them and leave after them. Bosses love to see you working hard – and harder than them is even better. If you work remote make sure they see your emails of instant messages before or after the end of the day.
Remember the boss screws up too. When the boss messes up help him or her to clean up, don’t blame them but also help them not to be an idiot again.
Don’t ask for a pay raise instead tell the boss what you are going to do to make more money for the company. Once you show how valuable you are to the organization then you can negotiate money.
Be passionate about what the boss is passionate about. This could be the Steelers, HGTV Network or their kids. Learn about what they like so you can like it too.
