Session: You Can Manage Your Boss
You and the boss have a prickly relationship. You and she/he can't seem to get on the same page. In this session, I'll give 5 good step towards improving the relationship with your boss AND I'll give you 3 secrets that every boss wishes their employees knew.
- Communication is Essential: We all know communication is key, but we often forget that the "how" of communication is as important as the delivery.
- Set Expectations: Ask your boss for their expectations of your performance. But not just the things that go on the performance review, the intangibles.
- Reverse the Golden Rule: Treat them the way they want to be treated.
- Self Check: First examine yourself to see what part you've played in the current state of the relationship
