I love my boss! Yes, I really do said no one. However, there are the few that find themselves in that elite status of truly enjoying their work and their boss!
Most employees find themselves in situations where there is no camaraderie with their boss, so it’s always a welcome change when your boss likes you and the feeling is mutual.
However, it’s not always obvious that your boss likes you, so here are some signs to watch for:
They give time for great one-on-one sessions
Your boss schedules one-on-one sessions and these are productive meetings. You hear your boss talk about future goals and opportunities. Your boss listens and takes action on some of your discussion points.
Over time, you notice changes are being made based on feedback and outcome of some of these one-on-one sessions. There is an open line of communication between yourself and your boss. Communication is important in any relationship being successful.
They allow independent thinking
Your boss gives you autonomy and liberty to make decisions without having to check-in. He/she allows you to attend meetings on their behalf and isn’t micromanaging your work efforts.
They recognize your characteristics and strength as an employee
A great boss is attentive to his/her direct reports and knows their strengths and weaknesses. Your boss wants you to stay when he/she recognizes your area of strength and tailors assignments or projects to showcase your strengths and commends you.
They give pay raises
Another sign your boss wants you to stay, you get an excellent performance review and your pay raise commensurate with that feedback.
