Every boss wants employees who do their jobs well. But even among highly competent employees, there are distinctions. Here are 10 tips for making sure you're on the boss' A-list:

每个老板都想要可以将工作做好的员工。但是即便员工们都很能干,不同人之间还是有差异。下边是十点建议,教你如何保证自己是一直是老板的“爱将”。

1. Communicate, communicate, communicate. 交流、交流、交流

Especially at the beginning of your relationship. that is, when either you or the boss is new to the job -- err on the side of giving your boss too much information and asking too many questions.

尤其是在建立关系的初期,即:当你、或者老板新上岗的时候。为老板提供信息和向老板提出问题都要宁滥勿缺。

"There's no such thing as a dumb question," says Marianne Adoradio, a Silicon Valley recruiter and career counselor. "Look at it as information gathering."

来自硅谷的招聘人员、执业顾问Marianne Adoradio说:“问老板的问题没有笨问题。把提问题作为一项信息收集活动来做。”

Don't keep up the constant stream of communication unless your boss likes it, though. It's best to ask directly whether you're giving the boss enough information or too much.

不过除非老板喜欢,否则别交流起来没个完,最好直接问老板信息是否给足了、问题是否太多。

2. Acknowledge what the boss says. 对老板的话有反馈。

Bosses appreciate "responsive listening," says John Farner, principal of Russell Employee Management Consulting. When your boss asks you to do something or suggests ways for you to improve your work, let her know you heard.

Russell员工管理顾问机构负责人John Farner说老板们喜欢“有响应的倾听”。当你的老板让你做某件事,或者提议你改进工作时,那么让他知道你收到了信息。

3. Collaborate. 协作。

When your boss has a new idea, respond to it in a constructive way instead of throwing up roadblocks.

当你的老板有了一个新想法,那么用建设性的方式做出回应而不要抛出拦路石。

"Be willing to brainstorm ways to get something done," says Michael Beasley, principal of Career-Crossings and a leadership and career development coach.

Career-Crossings培训公司负责人、领导及职业发展教练Michael Beasley说“要愿意一起去探讨出如何完成某个任务的方法”。

4. Build relationships. 建立关系。

You'll make your boss look good if you establish a good rapport with your department's customers, whether they're inside the company or outside. Bring back what you learn -- about ways to offer better customer service, for example -- to your boss. This is also helpful for your own career development.

如果你和自己部门的顾客(不论是企业内部还是外部的)建立了紧密的联系,这就会让你的老板脸上有光。把你所学的(例如:如何能提供更好的客户服务)告诉给你的老板。 这对你自己的事业发展也有帮助。

"Everybody wins in the long run," Adoradio says.

Adoradio说:“从长远来看大家都会获益。”

5. Understand how you fit in. 了解老板对员工的期待。

Is your boss detail-oriented, or someone who keeps his head in the clouds?

你的老板关注细节吗?还是一位“空想家”?

"The boss's personality is just incredibly important," says Norm Meshriy, a career counselor and principal of Career Insights.

“老板的性格无比重要。”Career Insights负责人、职业顾问Norm Meshriy如是说。

Equally important is understanding what your boss wants in an employee. It may be, for example, that a boss who is detail-oriented will expect his employees to be as well. But a boss who has no time for details may actually appreciate an employee who does.

同等重要的是了解老板对员工有什么期待。例如,一位关注细节的老板可能会期待自己的员工也一样关注细节。不过没功夫花在细节上的老板也许就只关心员工完成了什么工作。
