- Do good work. If you have a good boss and you do good work this will be enough and you won't have to do anything else.
- Be positive. If you are someone who sees the glass as half empty. Go home at night and figure out a way of viewing each circumstance in a positive light. You will by magic, within the next week be asked for your opinion and you will be able to state a positive opinion. This is called leadership. You will inspire your boss and they will look on you more favourably.
- Try to say yes when your boss asks you to do something. Unless it is unethical or truly outside of your job description. If you are too busy then say so, if taking on the task will jeopardize your other projects then let that be your answer. Just try to avoid saying no without a good reason. If you do need to say no then try to get someone else to be the nay sayer and I am not talking about your team mates. Talk to people. When it becomes painful obvious that the boss' plan won't work in the light of new information that your boss did not have access to originally then go back and get him or her to change her mind. "Boss, I really liked your idea but in talking to Cindy from accounting it won't fly for the following three reasons".
- Don't follow crap advice from your boss. From time to time they will instruct you to be aggressive in dealing with someone. Or to use a back door method of getting something done. Just say that you haven't had the chance to follow that advice yet.
