So now that you have a clearer picture of why you want your boss to think you’re great, take a hard look at these twelve areas and assess where you are. If you find you need to work on a few areas, don’t get discouraged, get to work. If you want another opinion, ask your boss how you measure up. Make a chart if it helps you keep track. Put specific action items and time frames on your chart. If charting isn’t for you, find some other mechanism to assess your skills and keep track of your efforts and your progress. Mastering these twelve areas will not only make your boss think you’re great, it will greatly boost your own confidence, and make work so much more fun.
