7 Ways to Bond With Your New Boss
Do you have a new boss in your office? Are you thinking about how you will bond with your new boss? Here are a few ideas you can use to bond with your new boss and be in his or her good books.
1. Throw your boss a welcome party
One of the first things you should do to instantly bond with your new boss is to throw a treat or a party. Take your new boss out to lunch, dinner or a drink. Make sure you do it in a group so that it doesn’t come across as inappropriate. The welcome party will be a great way to congratulate your boss for a new job and break the ice.
2. Compliment your boss often
Giving compliments can help you break the ice with someone who you don’t know very well. You can use the same trick on your new boss too. Find out a little bit about your boss’ work history and pay him or her relevant compliments. This will make your boss feel nice and you will instantly create a rapport with each other. Make sure that your compliments are succinct and genuine so that you don’t look like you are trying to wriggle into your boss’ good books.
3. Chat with your boss after work at parties and events
After work drinks, parties or events are perfect occasions when you can grab a chance to chat with your new boss and know him or her better. This is also the time when your boss will be at ease and in a better frame of mind to chat casually. At such occasions, you will be able to know your new boss more as a friend rather than just a boss.
4. Don’t miss a chance to show your boss your talents
Socializing with your boss is one of the ways to bond with him or her. Another way in which you can bond with your new boss is by doing remarkable work. Your boss will be looking forward to spot excellent employees and if you show your talents at the right time, you will have better chances of being remembered by your boss.
