What your boss really
wants from you
ROBERT M. GALFORD
Even in these times of feverish attention
to performance metrics, it’s not always
clear what the boss wants or expects.
Why? Maybe there’s a presumption
that those expectations are already clear
and they’re not.
Or, maybe the employee is placing
pressure on him - or herself to do bet-
ter (“I am a strong performer, but maybe
that’s not enough.”).
There’s a joint responsibility to ensure
that expectations are well-articulated
Your boss wants you to be:
• Relentlessly focused on making your
numbers and completing projects
or initiatives in a timely, responsible
fashion. And if things are regrettably
falling short, your boss is expecting
some sort of early-warning heads-up.
• Well aware of the particular num-
bers or initiatives that are of critical
importance to him or her. Are you
fluent in those numbers, and do you
keep your boss apprised of where
they are trending? You should be.
Also, if these numbers or projects
are veering off course, your boss
wants you to come
to him or her with
the problem early
on (and armed with
a few well-thought-
out possible solu-
• On top of the pulse
of your organisa-
tion, and of your
customer and client
base. You should
know where the
stress points are
and what’s being
done about them.
• Clear on where the
business is going in
the broader sense
and in the longer
term. You should
have a respectable
point of view on
where the company
should be going and
about your people
and their people

their jobs help the
company meet its
goals? How are their
jobs tied to your

of competent peo-
ple who trust you,
trust each other,
keep you in the
loop, and feel as if
you are there to help
and guide without
getting in the way.
Think of the last five
direct reports who
came into your of-
fice. What did they
want? What does
that tell you about
the relationship you
have with them?
• Capable of identify-

tively — either alone
or in collaboration

• Able to play well

fident enough to
say what you think

enough to hear, re-
spect, and possibly
views into your own
You can use this list
in two ways. The first,
and most obvious, is to
ensure that from your
you’re hitting on each
of those eight cylinders.
The second is to think
of each of the people
reporting to you. Are
these the kinds of things
you expect from them?
Do they know? How do
you know they know?
Can you make sure?
Imagine how much
you would value your

points. Imagine how
valuable it would be to
