How to manage your boss!

To work constructively with your superior, you don't need to love them. It's better to manage them. Read on to find out how you can have a positive influence on your boss.

1. Bosses need successes!
Anyone who helps their boss achieve success will be valued. That means it's worth finding out where your boss's strengths lie. After all, these strengths—and not the weaknesses that are sure to exist too—are what help achieve successes.

2. Good preparation is half the battle.
Many bosses don't have enough time. This makes not wasting their time all the more important. For an effective discussion, you need to be well prepared.

3. No surprises!
If a problem arises, the boss needs to be informed. Suppliers who don't listen, or customers who don't pay—your boss needs to be informed early on so he can decide whether or not to intervene.

4. Bosses aren't mind readers.
They rely on information from their employees, who, in turn, have a duty to provide this information. This applies to both work and personal matters that affect the working relationship. This may sound a little abstract, but in the communication era this isn't always a matter of course. A flood of information may travel from one person to another, but the loop isn't necessarily closed. What's important is providing your boss with regular feedback. This helps make the current status of ongoing work or projects clear for both sides.
