Finding a job in the employment rat race is difficult enough without looking for a career with special perks, such as an awesome boss. In most cases, the unemployed are simply looking for an income and the employed just want to keep the job that they have. This need to work often pushes to people to work in less than desirable circumstances. While you typically have no choice in the boss that you acquire, you can make your choice on how to improve your relationship with your boss.

Most bosses are looking for one kind of worker, a dedicated one. If you value your work and take pride in what you do, you likely will not run into much trouble with your boss. Be at work on time and work while you are there and your boss will have little to complain about when it comes to you being an employee.

Once you have been at the job for a while and you learn more about your boss, you can begin to read his or her moods. You will soon recognize what makes your boss happy and what makes him/her angry. Once you know exactly what expectations the boss has, simply meet them. Do not push for extras or push the limits when your boss is in a bad mood or appears stressed. Hold off on asking for favors when the mood is right.

To improve your relationship with your boss, acknowledge that your boss has a higher position than you do. In most cases, the boss has been in the career longer. Therefore, open yourself to learning from him or her. Do not let pride take out the possibility that you do not know everything that there is to know about the job. When your boss offers a tip or technique, graciously accept it and show appreciation for the advice.

While you should be a self-initiator and not have to be continuously told each detail of the job, do ask questions when in doubt. If you are uncertain of the expectations and requirements of a specific part of your job, it is much better to ask your boss than to complete the work incorrectly and have to redo it later. Your boss will appreciate your willingness to please and you will appreciate the time that you saved from doing it right the first time around.

In many cases, a boss less frequently responds to those workers that are adequately completing the job. The busy schedule of the head man or woman typically only leaves time for those that need correcting. Do not let your boss’ lack of time or attention to you hurt your feelings. If you feel the need for communication, simply ask for your boss’ feedback on a project. Once your boss has given positive feedback on your work, you can feel satisfied with a job well done.

Learning simple ways to help improve the relationship that you have with your boss can greatly ease stress and pressure at the workplace. A good working relationship most definitely leads to a happy workplace. Even if you find your boss to be a less than desirable person to be around, consider the benefits that you will reap from carrying out daily tips to create a workable relationship between the two of you.
