Use Personal Hobbies To Nurture Career Success

The ideal situation is to have a boss who looks out for your interests during difficult times. This protectiveness is nurtured when the boss thinks of you not just as a competent employee but as a kindred spirit. If you want a higher quality relationship with the boss, develop an interest in something that also interests the boss. Ideally, this should be an activity that fits nicely into the work experience. For example, if your boss likes to talk business while playing golf, learning to play and enjoy golf. This will predictably bring a tighter business bond between you.

"To really understand your boss, you need to see him or her as a person, not just as a business contact," explains Dilip Phadke, Hewlett Packard's director of business development strategic initiatives.
