Managing Your Boss

There are keys to success in managing bosses.  First, put down on a piece of paper a “boss list,” everyone to whom you are accountable.  Next, go to each person on the list and ask, “What do I do and what do my people do that helps you do your job?”  And, “What do we do that makes your life more difficult?”
