When it comes to management, bosses can be a dream come true or a nightmare. Whether you work for an intimidating corporate type or a laid back manager, you should always strive to get along with the person you work for. Here are six tips for creating a more positive working relationship with your boss.

1. Focus on the Positives

Does your boss offer positive reinforcement? Does he give you greater flexibility than past managers? One of the ways you can get along with your boss is to focus on the positives, whether that means his personality traits or the way he treats you. People are multidimensional, and even the most difficult bosses offer positives that you can focus on.

2. Work Around Your Boss

Your boss didn’t get to her position by chance or luck. Most managers earn their positions through hard work, which means you should respect their expertise and schedules. If you disagree about an assignment or deadline, then yield to your boss’s opinions. She’s not your master, but she is in a position of authority that you should value.

3. Ask for Constructive Feedback

If you sense that your boss is dissatisfied with your work, then consider asking him for constructive feedback. Chances are that your boss has been in the field for some time, and you might benefit from his experience. Asking for feedback shows that you care about your job, and your boss will appreciate the gesture.

4. Be Trustworthy & Dependable

One of the best ways to get along with your boss is to ensure that she trusts you, and she’ll trust you only when you prove that you’re reliable. Complete tasks on time without excuses, show up every day on time and do what you promise to do. Over time, trust garners respect, and respect leads to a mutually beneficial working relationship.

5. Handle with Care

Gauge your boss’s behavior for signs that his bad mood has nothing to do with work. Just make sure you handle your boss’s feelings with care without letting him overstep professional bounds.

6. Do Your Job Well

Do your job to the best of your ability so that your boss has no cause for letting you go. If you prove yourself over time and still find yourself facing a wrongful termination claim, then consider speaking with a Wrongful Termination Attorney in Birmingham to discuss your rights.

Everyone has bad days, and your boss is no exception. She may be dealing with personal issues that affect her work. At the end of the day, all you can do is your best, which means putting your energy into completing your assignments efficiently and effectively.

employee high morale
Employees that enjoy their careers
Morale is a very important aspect in any office. High morale means happy and productive employees that look forward to work each day. Low morale means a disgruntled workforce that will not reflect positively on the company. Following are several tips to help keep office morale high.

Fun Surprises

One effective way to improve morale especially during the busiest and most stressful times of the year is to surprise everyone with something fun. This could mean passing out ice cream sundaes, putting on a silly show before the day starts or having a masseuse in the building to provide shoulder massages during breaks. Other surprises could include a holiday lunch buffet for the staff or a valet in the parking lot to bring cars around as people leave. These surprises increase morale and relieve stress.

Incentive Programs

Incentive programs increase morale in nearly any business. Employees are rewarded for hard work and exceptional performance. Rewards programs give everyone tangible goals to work towards throughout the day beyond basic job duties. They foster healthy competition between co-workers. The programs also increase morale because they show that each person is contributing towards the larger goals and success of the company. These programs could be based on sales, handle times, customer comments or even ideas to improve the business.

Individual Recognition

Improving morale often means providing individual recognition to employees. This shows that the business is aware each employee is a person and not just a statistic. Individual recognition could occur each week or at monthly staff meetings. Acknowledging anniversaries, birthdays and even training or performance milestones will all improve morale. Consulting with companies like O.C. Tanner can help businesses to develop different channels for recognition. This recognition could even come with rewards such as gift certificates, paid time off or branded company gear like an umbrella.

Consistency

Part of maintaining high morale has to be the style of management employed. Managers and team leaders need to be consistent when dealing with employees. Perceptions of favoritism or unfair targeting will create an distrusting and negative environment. The office has to operate transparently. Each person from the newest employee to the top supervisor must be subject to the same rules. Each qualified person should have the same opportunities for advancement. This consistency and transparency will allow every employee to trust the company. This keeps morale high even if something negative occurs.
Morale in any office will fluctuate based on many factors. The key to maintaining high morale is to notice when employees are becoming unhappy and to react appropriately. This attention to the state of the office will let everyone know that the concerns of the employees matter.
