Tips on how to build a strong relationship with your boss or teacher
What is the meaning of boss?
Boss means a person who is in charge of a, group, place of work or an organization,
A head/ A owner
1. THEIR CHARACTER IS NOT CONSTANT
The relationship between you and your boss today isn’t necessarily going to be the relationship you have with your boss in the recent years. Don’t get too hanged up on the current relationship. When you are working under someone, the relationship is always going to be increasing. Without you knowing, you will both move on and the relationship will grow accordingly. Do the best you can and don’t get too much hanged up on what the relationship will become years from now.
2. NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH EVERY BOSS IS NOT GOING TO BE THE SAME.
Some boss will be great and others not that great, it is kind of a personality thing. Some bosses may notice some things about you and others may not. Your personality might be okay with a boss but another boss the other way. That’s work.
3. DON’T WAIT FOR APPRAISER.
Every time people tell me that they are waiting for praise, it feels immature to me. Must you need to be told that you are doing well…? Why can’t you be complex and confident in what you are putting out into the world?. Be confident in your abilities. Your boss isn’t a mind reader and remember, you are expected to do a good job and to do your work that’s part of the job requirements, just do your job and don’t mind if you are being praised or being rewarded with appraisers, if you’re being praised, count it as a plus.
4. GET TO KNOW HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR BOSS.
There are people who explain everything all out and there are those ones who don’t explain and would expect you to know. There are people who ask for something the day they want it and there are people who ask for things days in advance. It just needs you to take time and study your boss communication skills. It takes time to learn how everyone works or functions. When you start a new job, or new to an organization, we suggest you ask your boss some questions about their preferred communication methods and styles. Example, (when you have questions, should those be handled over the phone, in person, via email, or by text?
5. LATENESS AND PUNCTUALITY
During our research, we have met with several executives who all says that it’s a great feeling to walk into work every day and see the same person sitting there days after days. These busy executives need someone to rely on, or to depend on. The more trust they build on you, the more projects or works they will send to your table. When you are useful to your boss, it goes a long way, and when you are the consistent face that your boss sees in the morning and can rely on to be there already working on the projects, that is a great thing. It will also give you time to prepare for what the day brings.
6. DON’T LEAVE BEFORE YOUR BOSS LEAVES.
Leaving before your boss doesn’t set a great precedent. Just sit tight, get organized, and work on the next day to-do list or work file. If you’re out of tasks to do, read the industry trades–make the most of your time in the office. You don’t want your boss to come out of his or her office and see you on Facebook regardless of whether it’s after your working hours .
7. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE BEST FRIENDS WITH YOUR BOSS.
They don’t need to know everything about you or your personal life. Unless your boss sends you a friend request, don’t be Facebook friends. It’s okay to follow your boss on Twitter as it’s not as intimate a network as Facebook.
8. DON’T ARGUE WITH YOUR BOSS ALL THE TIME.
When you argue with your boss, it makes him or her feel that you think you know more than them, but there will come a time when something happens and you need to confront your boss. I think we all one day get to that point in our early careers. But you can’t pick every fight. You can’t have a new topic to argue on with your boss every day.
9. LOYALTY AND HONESTY.
Try not to keep secrets (work-related) from your boss. Let them know that you are on their side. If you are ever in a situation where people are bad-mouthing your boss, let him or her know. This will help your boss to trust you and know you are to be trusted. Should you expect this loyalty back?. Not sure, it really depends on the kind of person he or she is.
