A bad boss can make a job hell.

And a good working relationship with your boss does not just happen; but it can be possible if you work at it. This book shows how. It sets out proven approaches and practical tips about a range of matters from communications to job appraisals where you can take an initiative with action that can help create the relationship that you want, and which your boss finds works and which they like.
