Getting Along With Your Boss

Getting along with your boss often is the difference between enjoying and hating your job. Studies show that the number one reason people cite (ahead of wanting more pay) when leaving their job is a negative relationship with their boss. The good news is that, if you are not happy with your relationship with your boss, there are things you can do to improve it. Often, employee-boss disconnects are caused by fairly simple mismatches of personality types. This set of 4 articles will look at each of the 4 personality types of bosses, and give you specific insights and suggestions for how to take proactive steps in improving your relationship.

Who knows, beneath that frustrating surface, your boss may actually have a heart (or a brain, or a sense of adventure, or a sense of responsibility).
