1. Write at the top of blank sheet of paper, “I expect my boss to:”
2. Then make a list of your expectations.
3. Put a star next to the most important expectations.
4. Now cross out “I expect my boss to: “ and write in “I would be grateful if my boss were to:”
Now you have a list of what you will appreciate if it happens rather than what you will be angry about when it doesn’t happen.
For the expectations you starred, sit down and talk to your boss.
Courteously ask them if they can help in those areas. Be ready to discuss how they can help.
What ideas do you have?
