Being comfortable with your working environment is important and would help boost your productivity levels. Your working environment includes your workplace, your colleagues and your boss.

Being on a bad patch with your boss is never good for your career; it’s always safer and better to along better with your boss or you might be faced with a hostile working environment or could even get sacked or sanctioned for no justifiable reason.

Below are typical examples that would help your relationship with your boss.

1. BE PROFESSIONAL

Every good boss appreciates an employee that’s professional to the core and being professional would only make you have a better relationship with your boss. Be prompt, be dedicated to your job, be committed, always put in your best, always try to be better, avoid unnecessary chattering while at work, stop giving excuses, accept your mistakes etc. These tips point that you’re professional with your work and your boss would appreciate you for that.

2. UNDERSTAND YOUR BOSS 

Many employees don’t understand their boss and this creates a frictional relationship between them. Understand your boss’s communication style, understand your boss’s working style, want he wants and how he wants the job to be done. It’s also important to understand your boss’s mood and how to cope along with his different moods.

Understanding your boss would only pave way for a better relationship.

3. HAVE A PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP

Most of the times, it’s better to have a professional relationship with your boss than a personal relationship. Sometimes, a personal relationship can create room for you to be threaded upon and you would not like that in the long run. Having a professional relationship with your boss means you would definitely have the respect of your boss.

4. UNDERSTAND YOUR JOB

When you are terrible at your job, you definitely won’t have a good relationship with your boss. No boss appreciates a lazy or incompetent employee. Understand what your job requires, be good at it and always give in your best shot. Every boss appreciates an employee that meets standard.

5. BE YOURSELF

For some unexplainable reasons, some employees try to bypass these four tips mentioned above and rather look for short cuts to have a better relationship with their boss. Many worship their boss to win favours and act so unoriginal. Your boss is a human too and needs a relationship that’s human; most times they can see through your fake personae and probably detest you for it.

 

Having a good working relationship with your boss would create an enabling environment for you to be relaxed and be productive in your job.
