It is not as important to adapt to the work culture as is to get acquainted with the boss. Thus it is very important to make a working relation with him and develop into a cordial working relationship. To facilitate this take into consideration the following mantras: AGREE MUTUALLY: There should be no conflicts what so ever, rather clarity of thought is a must. Observe his style of functioning and modify accordingly. MEET EXPECTATIONS and TARGETS ON TIME: Execute the tasks as per his expectations well in advance and on target without reminders and deadlines. VOICE YOUR CONCERN: You have the right to differ if you think the things can be done in a much better manner. PERFECT YOUR TIMINGS: Report on time schedules with boss. Be organized in work. Show accuracy and confidence. Submit a comprehensive report. NEVER LEAK OUT SECRETS: Never take advantage of the fact that you know the facts and try to disclose them to even your close associates. AMICABLY SOLVE PROBLEMS: It is very easy to create or tell problems. But it is more easier to solve the problems and become a troubleshooter especially boss’s problems. WIN CONFIDENCE: Win over his confidence by apprising him of the fact that you are Mr. Dependable, through your contributions and finding out his primary goals and objectives to achieve. TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES: Those who take responsibility are always seen with respect and are noticed for their work. SHOW COMMITMENT: Never take unnneccessry time out or holidays. Avoid idleness and gossiping. Contribute to the work with commitment. I hope that by following the mantras, success and the boss, both would be yours.
