This one single skill if you practice can give you the promotion you want…!!

The best communication is let the people do whatever you want without asking them to do it...

Communication with your boss : Your communication is key to success. You can get any amount of success or anything if you can convince peoples what you want them to do

Most of us think our boss is devil (Including me also) and we should not face him or talk him until he required..any answers or reports from us…and this is the reason…your boss will not be aware/ignore what problems or work you are doing for mutual benefit. It also affect our promotion and other benefits which we intend to get from our Organization..

Your Boss is your First & Priority Customer

Boss is our priority customer, so if you know what he wants than you can only serve him better, as the person who knows what his customers want, gets better benefits than others.

Get aware about his work style/priorities and adjust your work accordingly... soon you will create a positive balance with him and it will also going to help you during your important communications with ease.

Reporting is the Essential of Better Management We think our boss should be aware what hard work we are doing and should have reciprocate the same with high promotions... but that never happened, but you can do one thing what is being happened in your work report him., try to discuss your problems and achievements with him.

Reporting is the essential of good management system, so let your boss get aware what achievements you are getting, if not being informed automatically try to make it manually, communicate with your reports through weekly email or verbal,this will help your boss to better understand your situation/achievements and when he will going to decide about promotions this will definitely help you with some more points..

Make yourself ease in dealing with your boss...with day to day activities...

Make yourself aware about day to day activities and requirements from your boss...further you can also suggest your point of view…communication daily/weekly work progress, asking for help/advise from him.

Asking for some more work , a better way to communicate with your boss is to have lot of things to do together, this idea have been practically used by Brian Tracy, who is the most successful person in business development/marketing themes. Simple thing the more you will get connected the more are the chances to have better communication with your boss.

Doing the works which he required to be done on time make it sure can be delivered before the time line .., your every success with your boss is depend on your positive work balance with him...the more he will need you the more chances of growth will be for you in your field.

Needs time management skills to better manage your time and communication skills to say No to unwanted task/persons

Sometimes it would be better to help him without general cases. Like he needs some presentation, you can prepare draft., or can attend calls for him or help him in meeting etc... this will definitely increase your chances of communication as well as promotion but make sure allotted works must be completed on time and if not possible inform him as soon as possible.

Boss is always not right but you can’t tell him he is wrong...Once I had prepared some documents with help of my boss, it has taken us 7-8 days to prepare complete set of technical documents to be submitted to Govt. Administration, and at least we have prepared and submitted to govt offices to get some permission, after 3 to 4 month , permission have been received according to our submission but after some corrections in our submitted documents, which were not intended to be done for us.

Result boss got angry on me, why you have not taken care of such things while preparing usual i was not happy with the response from my boss even after such hard work and for the thing I was even though he himself was not aware of the same.

So I wanted to clarify him, why he has not informed me since he was also checking the papers than why only I am responsible...

Way to tell him was show my anger...or let him understand with other way..

I have taken out the rough workings which were checked by him...and told Sir,...was it really ours mistake, since if we could be aware, even you also you have informed me since here are the documents you have checked yourself...and after your approval..we have finalized the same...

and that's a bouncer from my side...he got his mistake...and said sorry to me for his behavior..and also admitted his false..and it also made our office relations much stronger...than if I have shouted on him.....

Never shout on your boss,but must put your point with the ways you can..

Shake Your Shyness This is the biggest obstacle in better communication , your low confidence results in shyness in speaking in front of other peoples, you want to say something but you cant.., its a big obstacle but can be removed with practice.............

In spite of this you can easily speak with persons you are ease with and hence to do it with your on being ease in presence of your boss and this can be done when you are confident about your work since most of the peoples think that the boss will ask lots of questions about work, but if you are confident and expert in your working than you will feel ease in presence of your boss... so another thing is to work on expertise...& confidence level.
