The most important work relationship you have

Note: This is not about "Managing your Boss" because you don't manage your boss, your boss manages you. This is about empowering yourself to take ownership for the relationship, communications and deliverables. Don't ever tell your boss that you are managing them because they will not like that!

Are you unhappy at work, overworked, not progressing or not getting on with your boss?

In a perfect world we'd all be fulfilled at work, have opportunities to do what we're good at, get to progress into new opportunities, get acknowledgement and financial recognition for our contribution, not to mention have great relationships with our bosses. But we're not in a perfect world. Bosses have a tough job to do but most don't receive any meaningful training in how to be a boss. This is why it's no surprise that employees end up hating their job and feeling unfulfilled. It's no secret that many employees actively dislike their bosses but feel trapped. But what is a secret is that you don't have to accept this, you can complain about your situation or you can empower yourself to take action to fix it. 

These are some of the signs that you need to follow the process set out in the guide:

  • Unhappy/ feeling unfulfilled at work
  • Feeling disconnected from your boss (your boss doesn't seem to understand you nor you them)
  • Working hard but not getting corresponding results
  • Not knowing exactly what your boss's goals are and how you fit in with these goals
  • Not getting bonuses, promotions or increases

Or simply if you are the sort of person who wants to find out how to accelerate their career.

Managing your (relationship) with your boss is so important that it's one of the Management Foundations:
