Every boss wants employees who do their jobs well. But even among highly competent employees, there are distinctions. Here are 10 tips for making sure you're on the boss' A-list:


1. Communicate, communicate, communicate




Especially at the beginning of your relationship. that is, when either you or the boss is new to the job -- err on the side of giving your boss too much information and asking too many questions.


"There's no such thing as a dumb question," says Marianne Adoradio, a Silicon Valley recruiter and career counselor. "Look at it as information gathering."

来自硅谷的招聘人员、执业顾问Marianne Adoradio说:“问老板的问题没有笨问题。把提问题作为一项信息收集活动来做。”

Don't keep up the constant stream of communication unless your boss likes it, though.



2. Acknowledge what the boss says



Bosses appreciate "responsive listening," says John Farner, principal of Russell Employee Management Consulting. When your boss asks you to do something or suggests ways for you to improve your work, let her know you heard.

Russell员工管理顾问机构负责人John Farner说老板们喜欢“有响应的倾听”。当你的老板让你做某件事,或者提议你改进工作时,那么让他知道你收到了信息。


3. Collaborate



When your boss has a new idea, respond to it in a constructive way instead of throwing up roadblocks.


"Be willing to brainstorm ways to get something done," says Michael Beasley, principal of Career-Crossings and a leadership and career development coach.

Career-Crossings培训公司负责人、领导及职业发展教练Michael Beasley说“要愿意一起去探讨出如何完成某个任务的方法”。


4. Build relationships



You'll make your boss look good if you establish a good rapport with your department's customers, whether they're inside the company or outside. Bring back what you learn -- about ways to offer better customer service, for example -- to your boss. This is also helpful for your own career development.

如果你和自己部门的顾客(不论是企业内部还是外部的)建立了紧密的联系,这就会让你的老板脸上有光。把你所学的(例如:如何能提供更好的客户服务)告诉给你的老板。 这对你自己的事业发展也有帮助。

"Everybody wins in the long run," Adoradio says.



5. Understand how you fit in





Is your boss detail-oriented, or someone who keeps his head in the clouds?


"The boss's personality is just incredibly important," says Norm Meshriy, a career counselor and principal of Career Insights.

“老板的性格无比重要。”Career Insights负责人、职业顾问Norm Meshriy如是说。

Equally important is understanding what your boss wants in an employee. It may be, for example, that a boss who is detail-oriented will expect his employees to be as well. But a boss who has no time for details may actually appreciate an employee who does.



6. Learn the boss' pet peeves



If your manager has said repeatedly that she hates being interrupted first thing in the morning, don't run to her office to give her a project update when you first get in.



7. Anticipate the boss's needs



Once you have worked with your boss for a while, you should be able to guess what information he will want before approving your purchase order, for example.


If you provide it ahead of time, "that's a gold star," Farner adds.



8. Think one level up



You still need to do your own job, of course. But when managers consider who deserves a promotion, they look for people who understand the issues that their bosses face.



9. Open yourself to new ways of doing things



When your boss comes to you with a new idea, don't simply dismiss it. If you don't think it will work, offer to discuss it further in "a mature, responsible, adult-like way," Beasley says.

当你的老板带着一个新点子来找你,不要轻易否定这个想法。如果你认为这想法不会奏效,以“成熟、负责任的、成年人的方式”提议进一步讨论,Beasley 建议。


10. Be engaged in your work



Arguing with your boss over every request is not a good strategy, but neither is simply shrugging your shoulders and agreeing with everything your boss says. "The manager would like to see an engaged individual," Beasley says. That means both showing enthusiasm for your work and speaking up when you see room for improvement.
