7 Ways to Impress Your Boss

How difficult is it to get into your boss' good graces

Every newbie at work wants to impress their boss. If your boss is impressed, well, life gets a lot easier. Promotions don’t look like a distant mirage and life seems good.

Here are six ways how you can impress the pants of your boss:

1. Network in the Office

The more people you know in the office, the easier it is for you to get your boss’s work done. This always gets you brownie points and you soon become your boss’s go-to guy/girl.

2. Be Funny

Work can get very stressful at times! That’s when a joke is a great stressbuster and if you are the one who regularly busts the stress, nothing like it!

3. Get Him/Her His Daily Dose of Coffee/Poison

Keep your boss’s energy level on high at all times. He’ll thank you for it.

4. A Little Flirting Never Hurt

Usually, everyone hates the boss. If you can indulge in some healthy flirting with him, he will not feel like the worst person on earth. And that’s a good thing for you.

5. Know About His Personal Life

Ask him how his weekend went, what he did with his family and how his kids are doing at school. It’ll make him look at you as a human being and not just as a name on the employee till.

6. Help With Anything and Everything

If you’re not a cribber and help out with anything then that’s a straight ticket to promotion heaven.

7. Be Confident. Always

Work is hard. You will make mistakes. Sometimes, you may break down. That’s all fine. You can’t let it affect work for longer than necessary. Your boss will notice this and make a note of it.
