Succeeding with the same boss

Lessons from my marriage counselor

Last month I suggested a brown nosing strategy for “Succeeding with a new boss.” Your level of engagement on that topic inspired me to double down and offer a specific piece of advice for existing boss-employee relationships, particularly unhealthy ones.

To get us there, I start with a reader comment on the last column, posted in response to my discussion of sincerity as optional when it comes to putting your best foot forward with a new boss: “Sincerity is the most important attribute in any relationship. And if you can fake it, you’ve got it made.” Thank you for commenting on the column.
