One Marriage Strategy To Use With The Office Boss

Update Date: Feb 17, 2017 09:35 AM EST

A marriage counsellor shared a strategy that people can use in the office to effectively deal with the boss. A good relationship with the supervisor can have a huge impact in one's career.

The boss wants to feel that they are heard, just like a spouse. Gary Stollman, marriage counsellor and psychotherapist, emphasize the importance of improving the dynamic relationship between an employee and his manager.

Stollman said that employees need to look more than in the eye of the boss when he is talking. The employee needs to follow through on what he tells him to do.

A lot of people look and listen. However, nodding without following is one of the biggest mistake a worker can do, according to Stollman in a report by CNBC. The same case goes in a marriage. Spouses should not just listen but also act.

One can show respect to the boss by listening to what he says. A CEO of a company worth $16 billion said that some employees underrate the importance of improving communication skills. If one want to progress in his career, he should learn how to listen.

On the other hand, working with a boss who is much younger can be a challenge just like dealing with a spouse which is years younger or older than the other. A study published in the Journal of Organizational Behaviour shared some tips on how to deal with this kind of relationship.

Managing one's attitude is a must for a harmonious relationship. Respect is very important as well and must be treated as a two way street. Boss loves enthusiastic employees. One needs to ask for new assignments or responsibilities. Getting some new skills apt for the job would come in handy. Once the boss will see the employees being proactive, he will be more likely to open career doors in the future.
