    I have tried many times to be good friends with the manager of our company but failed

    I am working in a software company. My colleagues have told me that if anyone befriends our manager , he will do anything for you. So I have tried many times to befriend our manager but have never succeeded. Please give me some good suggestions regarding the same.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Being an employee,you must be confined to your duty in order to perform it well.If you are an honest,laborious,efficient,well behaved etc,It is not required to be a good friend of your manager in order to be successful in professional career.

    You should also note that the friendship is developed among equal status.Here it is not the same situation as required to develop friendship.You are a subordinate & your manager is superior.So you must be obedient to obey the order of the manager to carry out the official works in time.I mean to say that if you are a good employee in all aspects,you will get appreciation from your manager which will be sufficient for your promotion & all.

    So need not worry for developing friendship with your manager.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hi Dear,

    Independence and self-reliance are the two qualities that can change the character of an individual
    . So, my friend instead of being dependent on your manager for your future plans, believe in yourself.

    A good product defines its own demand and it never depends on promotions made by its manufacturers
    . Likewise, try being such a product that you could be in demand because of your abilities and skills and not because of others support.

    Be bold, confident and committed towards your work so that people could come to you for support and you remain firm at your place. In addition, decide to take more charge of your life and chart your way to success by striving hard to realise your dreams and remember that there is no short cut to success. You have to struggle hard to achieve success because success is sweet but its secret is sweat.

    Thanks.

    You should not use friend ship for your benefits.You should be able to do your things by your own you not depend on other to do your work.
    If you are honest and behave friendly with other then any one can become friend to you.
    Perform well in the professional career.For getting success you should not depend on any one.
    manager is superior to you,If you are a good person and obedient,then he will help your and can be a friend to him.
    all the best
    thank you

    Hi,

    You are an employee. The only way to befriend your manager to impress him through your work. So focus on your work. Be innovative and creative in your work. Give new ideas and suggestions when required.

    Your colleagues are that because manager is the person who gives the report of your progress. He is the one who gives you promotion and appraisals. He can make your career better and make you achieve your goals in life.

    You must so try to work hard. Hard work is good but smart in more important. So work smartly. Avoid making mistakes of any kind.

    You should be polite to every one and stay friendly with every one.Do not indulge in any fights or rivalry with anyone. Make a positive strong good character and image of yourself.

    Working hard is the only key to success. It will take some time but your boss will surely notice your every point and every move. Be different and better than others so that your boss can easily identify your qualities.

    Do not try to be friends with him by some other means.
    All the best

    It is not necessary to become friends with your Manager and than only he would help you.
    The company has assigned him the role of the Manager and he has to make sure that he is able to run the team and also look into the issues of each team Member
    I would suggest that you should just concentrate on your work
    Try to do good work as per the SLA
    Be punctual to office daily
    Take initiative in doing some other works apart from your daily work to help the team
    Also you should not have any disciplinary issues

    Hi,
    According to me you just need to thing's hard work and honesty regarding to your profile/work. Friendship is secondary thing in any profession. If you are good and hard working employee then "He/manager" will do anything for you.
    But if your colleagues have told you that if anyone is good friend with your manager, then he will do anything for him, but i don't have this type of experience. I have very good and professional relationship with my manager and other colleagues and this is sufficient for my future.
    So just give your sent percent and hope for positive.I am sure that you will have good relationship either both personnel and as well as professional.

    I want to ask you a question that why you have joined the company?
    For doing freindship with your boss or for earning money.
    Obviously the answer will be for earning money because there is nothing to do with the boss because he is also a employee of that company who is serving and taking the salary.
    Then why you are wasting your time to do freindship with the boss as he is not for you.
    According to me bosses are only for taking the *** of the employees because if he will be not there then employees will not do the work properly.
    So it will be better for you to concentrate on your work because you will be paid for that only your boss is not a concerned person for your salary and all because he is just seeing the work of the employees.
    Bosses are something who will make their work good by you and if there will be anything wrong in your work then they will fire you also.
    So never try to be with them as they are just hypocrites. Some of the bosses are good but many of them are just selfish.
