Even if you're not best friends with your boss, you should have a good working relationship with them.
Here is how you can break down your boss's type and better deal with them in the workplace.
Some successful bosses have employees that respect them say that they would never ask the people that work for them to do something that they would not do.
Not all bosses are like that.
If your boss is a straight shooter, be upfront, keep e-mails short and to the point.
For the micro-manager, it is usually a trust issue. Head off your boss's requests by anticipating what they want and get it done before they ask.
If your boss is task-oriented, limit the amount of time you spend around the water cooler.
If you gravitate toward people who don't like their boss, your boss may begin to not like you.
Spend time with people who like their job and their boss, because they might be able to teach you how to like your job as well.
