This article addresses the soft skills specifically required to build good rapport with and to gain trust from our bosses. The mantras imparted include the following: our bosses expect our loyalty to them; we should share credit with our bosses for accomplishments and shoulder the blame for failures, even if our bosses contributed to the failure; we should be able to read nuances from our bosses; and we should be proactive and possess farsighted vision.
