Keeping Your Boss Happy

Keeping Your Boss Happy
Boss, manager, supervisor, team leader -- regardless of the term you use, most of us have one. And whether you adore or can't stand yours, there's no denying that your daily work experience can be substantially improved by putting yourself on the right side of your higher-up. Your boss's Sun sign will tell you a great deal about what he or she likes about an employee -- and what tends to tick them off.

Aries
Energy is the key to your Ram boss, so if you don't have it, learn how to fake it, for only the strong survive. Take notes as they whirl from fire to fire. This boss appreciates employees who are not only able to keep up with them, but can also keep track of Plans A, B, C, and D -- all while smoothing the feathers of those they've upset along on the way with their intense approach to work!

Taurus
Taurus appreciates conservatism, well-designed plans, and a staff that can remain balanced as they barrel ahead toward goals. Dig deep to root out the underlying causes of problems, avoid disruption and surprises (even good ones), and ensure waste is eliminated. And be there with coffee, cake, and chocolate when the going gets tough!

Gemini
Be prepared to listen, use your own initiative, and offer your fair share of gossip. The Gemini boss is known for placing emphasis on details, so they appreciate employees who are able to offer a big-picture view while still showing the willingness to take a few risks.

Cancer
If your manager is a Crab, you'll want to work as hard as they do and respect the experience they offer. If you follow this tack, they'll nurture you and help you grow; however, if you take them for granted or abuse time off, they won't soon forget it.

Leo
Bask in the warmth of your Leo supervisor's spotlight, but don't ever direct it toward yourself, or their generosity will quickly dry up! Leo possesses a huge dislike for gossip and backstabbing; rather, they appreciate having a loyal staff with unique, innovative ideas.

Virgo can't tolerate messiness and disorganization, so it's no surprise that they expect clean surfaces and wrinkle-free outfits. Provide them with a pivot table and comprehensive meeting minutes, and try not to be too disheartened by their criticism -- after all, it's generally for your own good. Offer them a vision they can break down into digestible details.

Libra
Libra prefers a social, harmonious work environment, so do your part to keep intra-office conflicts to a minimum. This team leader appreciates employees who always look their best and are prepared to fight their own battles. And once any storms have passed, he or she will be happy to step in and help calm the waters.

Scorpio
Show the data, provide the proof, and don't even consider trying to manipulate your Scorpio boss. If you can give them the stability they need, while at the same time accept that they're rarely wrong and understand that they rarely forgive, they'll likely transform your career in return.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius's vision is too great to be confined within a partition, so allow your Archer boss the freedom to roam. Offer them honesty and integrity as you focus on the details they can't be bothered with. And then? Sit back, strap in, and enjoy the ride!

Capricorn
Your Capricorn manager looks for reliability, dedication, and respect for seniority and experience. They can't abide lateness, immaturity, clock-watchers, or anyone with ideas above their place in the organization's hierarchy. They also believe that the workplace is not a runway, so save your mini-skirt, glittery jewelry, and revealing blouses and dresses for evenings.

Aquarius
This manager appreciates ideas, innovation, and a view that leans toward the greater good. Brainstorming sessions are great; heavy, overly personal emotional discussions are not. And the phrase "Because we've always done it this way" should not be used in their presence, ever.

Pisces
Listen intently to your Pisces boss's dreams, then help make their vision a reality by setting your focus on achievable goals and organized task-planning. Pretend you don't notice when they spend long moments gazing out the window. If they show trust in you, do right by them and they'll pick you up when you're down.
