Here are a few things which your boss has an accurate knowledge about you,
He knows your strengths and weaknesses
A successful boss always knows how to make use of the team and every member of the team because he pays attention to group dynamics. He knows your skills and he knows when and how he will need them. If he believes that you can do the job better than others, for example, that’s your strongest asset. Great bosses know your area or expertise and are waiting to see more of you.
He knows how you work
Employers will hire you because they believe you will be able to fit in with the rest of the group. When you start working, they will be able to tell if that’s something that you can do. For example, they might see that you prefer to work individually, or you only get super inspired while working within a team. Since both styles of working are important to company efficiency, an excellent manager will try them both to assess how your working style affects the rest and as such balances these two – individual and group work.
He knows what motivates you to work
Smart bosses know what gives you the motivation to do great work. While it is difficult for them to find out what keeps you going – I mean let’s face it, every person has a different drive, they are experimenting with different techniques to find out how you are able to give your best. So, if they think all you need to do good work is the sense of urgency or a little adrenaline from taking part in a work competition, that’s exactly what they going to do to help you produce more work. However, if they find out this brings the opposite results on the table, they will revise.
He knows you need freedom
Great bosses don’t micromanage because they know the consequences of such actions. In fact, not only is this counter-productive, but in many ways, it also kills the creativity. So to help you do your job as smoothly and efficiently as possible, managers give you a sense of freedom in your work. Since every employee needs a different level of independence in their work, the manager’s job will be to find out how much freedom you need and what works best for you.
