Your boss hates you and it’s your fault

Dawn Metcalfe shares her advice on building a better relationship with your boss on AccountingWEB:

What’s the most important factor in determining your success and happiness at your job and, ultimately, within an organisation? Despite what many think, it’s not your technical or functional skills or knowledge – that’s what gets you the job in the first place. It is your relationship with your boss that’s most crucial to how much you enjoy your role, what you learn and where you go next.

Dawn is a longtime advocate for building no-fear workplace cultures and having the difficult conversations. She was also a guest on Season 1 of Tales of the Trade.
