    Unable to impress my boss for the past 10 years

    I am working in a government organisation. I have been here for the past 10 years but havenít able to impress my boss at all. As a result I havenít been able to show any growth in this organisation. This is definitely not good for my career and I am thinking of leaving this job. Is this the right decision? What to do in this case?

    First of all I would like to say that you shouldn't think to leave the job because you are working in a government organization and you are failed to impress your boss so this may not be a right cause of leaving the job that's why first of all you should keep working hard in the organization and try to perform well and better than before whatever you have done in past 10 years because if you will provide more time and concentration to your work then your dedication will make your boss compel to think about your increment that is why you should keep your work fine and better all time

    Second of all if you think that you should impress your boss because you are not getting advantage of increment in your job then you need to think about your manager because working good is not enough in the company, you should have good relations with all employees of the organization and must have good respect and behavior for all working employees then your attitude leads and for that, you need to care for your boss and whenever any occasion comes, you should wish your boss and provide some sweets and whenever you keep any type of function or program at your house then you must invite your boss and this thing will leave impression in the mind of your boss and they will keep positive thinking about you and keep your attitude, candid and give respect and help others and juniors in the work

    All the best

    Dear Friend,

    You have written that you are working in this government organization for past 10 years and still you could not impress your boss and get any career growth. This is very unfortunate and you should try your best to change the situation for the better.

    There will be some serious mistakes that you would be committing and because of that you could not do very well in your work. But, what is the guarantee that in any other organization, you will be able to impress your boss and achieve good career growth? You will always be called a looser, if you quit your job.

    So, i would suggest you to take it as a challenge and improve yourself. The best person who can guide you and help you is your boss. Because, he has worked with you for last 10 years and so he knows your merits and demerits. So, please talk to your boss and ask him how can you improve yourself. He will surely point out your mistakes and will guide you. Similarly, you can talk to your colleagues also and ask for the opinion.

    In general i can suggest you to do few things mentioned here,

    1. always project your work much more than what you actually do
    2. get your work revied by some of your friends or colleagues
    3. improve the quality of your work
    4. be disciplined and punctual
    5. Think about some innovative ideas and communicate it to your boss
    6. try to spend some informal time with your boss e.g. during lunch
    7. make a good relation with everyone so that nobody complain about you, it is also beneficial to improve work efficiency of your team


    I am sure you will be able to impress your boss and achieve good career growth if you do the above mentioned things.

    All the best.
    Thank you.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Your thinking is definitely not good.It seems you are frustrated to a great extent which is not good.Try to sort out your shortcomings for not impressing your boss.If you are honest,obedience,hard worker,efficient etc,your boss will definitely be impressed with you.

    What you should do is to have a note of your responsibilities to be carried out,have a strategy which requires your technical knowledge,time,efforts,devotion,money to do the work.If you complete the works in time,definitely there will be some changes in your surroundings either inside or outside.Unless & until you are sincere towards your rights & responsibilities,you can not do any thing.If you don't do any thing,you won't find any changing.Changing job & place is not a solution to any problem.You have to bring changes within yourself by means of positive thinking & hard labour.

    So think positive,do positive & get positive.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Re: Unable to impress my boss for the past 10 years

    Impressing the boss is the main objective of all the employees.Everyone wants to impress their boss.This is because it is the boss who holds the key to the growth opportunity of any employee.Boss is the one of the most important person in the professional life of any individual.It is the boss who represents the employees before the management and can uplift one's career much beyond the level of qualifications of the individual and at the same time can bring downfall in the career of the individual.

    It is quite surprising that you are working for the past ten years and till now have not been able to impress your boss.This reveals that you are making the common mistakes which people usually do in order to become the favourite of the boss.You need to avoid certain things and develop certain things and implement them in your day to day professional life .

    The mistakes which you should avoid are :-
    -Giving surprises to the boss.
    -Unannounced leave
    -Excuse for underperformance
    -Doing personal stuff at work
    -Stretching the break timings.
    -Laughing around at boss's mistake
    -Badmouthing regarding company or boss
    -Stealing or taking too many personal calls at work.

    The traits which you should develop are :-
    -Hard work and dedication
    -Loyalty and discipline
    -Being a team player
    -Giving credit to the boss and the team
    -Flexibility
    -Not directly approaching the higher management

    Well if you are failing to impress your boss then its not your fault, because sometimes people dont like to appreciate anyones work as this is in their blood, they think that person who works below him are useless and he is a king, so if they wont have any kind of respect for you then you should also stop impressing them because its gonna be all invain.
    It will be better if concentrate on your work only because that will be the main thing to get the appreciation, you may have heard some useful words thats we read in our school like (neki kar dariya me daal) you need to be like this then only you will be appreciated, because if you do work to impress then you cannot impress because your motive is to impress not to do efficient work.
    May be your boss is only needing the best work that you cannot provide, if you do your work in a well manner and never expect for the fruit then only you can work effectively because someone says that (karm kar fal ki iccha mat kar) so you need to be like this also.
    You should also try to make a distance between you and your boss because as much distance you make with the boss he will fell your need. So keep maintaining the distance.

    faith,courage,discipline are the first thinks of the employee,if you loss any one of the above you cannot do any thing in that work.as you are not able to convence your boss from the last 10 years you should do the following things:

    1.always be punctual,discipline in office
    2.dont try to spoil the office atmosphere
    3.think differently and get innovative answers
    4.always give your boss good ideas which increase the faith and belife and the upliftment of the company
    5.always try to good in such a way that your boss gets the good opinion upon you.


    All the best
