Nobody Likes a Butt-Kisser

Posted on May 25, 2005 by Sarah Eaton.

Maybe you're the leader of your team, or maybe you're just really self-motivated and could say you're the leader of yourself.  Maybe you're Vice President of Something Really Important.  Maybe you're a lowly bottom-of-the-totem-pole-type.  Chances are, unless you're the owner of a company, you've got someone around the office who is your boss.

How do you interact with that person?  Are you a butt-kisser?  A spy?  A yes-man/woman?  Do you get all tongue-tied and stupid when they're around? 

Here's something I found (from CNN, via ChicWIT), in which Liz Ryan gives you the scoop: what to do and what not to do to look better to your boss.  Hint: stop with the insincere compliments; give him/her substance and quality instead.
