Know What Your Boss Expects of You

Even if you know your annual targets and goals, you may not always know everything your boss expects of you. Every manager has unspoken expectations. Here are three things you can do to meet them:

  • Collaborate. Bosses want people who cooperate. Overcome differences with others and work together effectively—even if you don’t like each other.
  • Lead initiatives. Those who raise their hands climb the ladder faster. Don’t be reluctant to take on new initiatives, even if they may not pan out.
  • Stay current. Bosses rely on their people for information. Regularly consume the news to stay informed about your competition, your customers, and what is happening in the marketplace.
