1. 'People don't quit their jobs, they quit their Bosses'.
We've heard and seen this happening!
Why does this happen? Because we have not developed a healthy and rewarding relationship with our boss.
Any relationship takes intention and effort! And yet, there is very little formal or informal training available about developing a relationship with your manager.
This course is an honest attempt to fill that gap. It is finding out answers to this question - 'How to Manage Relationship with my Boss?'
2. About me
I have total 19 years of corporate experience. I worked with 10 different bosses. And, I've been a manager to at least 5 teams.
Soft skills, contrary to the name, are HARD to learn!
I was quick to observe this. Thus, I have made it my mission to train and coach aspiring individuals to develop career-crucial soft-skills.
Like many of us, I too had my challenges with bosses. And one such relationship is noteworthy. I was a Manager and was reporting to this Director for more than 5 years. For first three years, it was a roller-coaster - going up and down! There were times, when I felt miserable, ignored and side-lined. On few occasions, I argued but with my Boss on the other side I ended up feeling helpless. Nonetheless, I stayed on - my work was good and despite the challenges, I had regard for my Boss' managerial skills and business acumen. I turned the searchlight on myself - I observed my other peers who were in Boss' good books.
With time I was able to get our relationship going. Then on there was no looking back! In later years, the relationship grew stronger and we both prospered. I led multiple initiatives for my Boss and my contribution was recognized with back to back promotions and increased visibility in the organisation. That phase not only got our relationship going but it also taught me a great deal about succeeding in corporate world.
I structured learning from my experience with proven professional best-practices to build this course.
This provides you with sound guidelines to build a great rapport with your boss!

5. Course Overview
The course has total 5 sections.
It starts with Introduction, then 3 sections for 3 Golden Rules and lastly, Closure section.
Across those sections there are total 24 lectures. No lecture is longer than 3 minutes.
The lectures are designed with examples, case-studies, video clips and importantly, individuals exercises that you must do to develop a game plan for your mission. Plus, there is a quiz at the end of every Golden Rule.
6. Do you have Narcissist (very difficult) Boss?
Sorry to learn that! Honestly, I've NOT designed this course with 'that' kind of boss in mind; don't want to set any wrong expectations with you. Ideas in this course are aimed at turning a cold (=indifferent) relation with your Manager into a warm one and even a good (=neutral) relation into a great one.
However, if you are not so sure about your boss, this course could be a good start.
6. Is the course updated?
The course is launched in June 2020. I've compiled three proven management strategies as 3-Golden Rules for developing a great relationship and a career. Under the Golden Rules, you will be presented with multiple soft skills that are easy to understand and can be practiced every day.
That said, I am totally committed to keeping updating the course based on direct student feedback as well as course questions I will receive. At any time, up-to-date content comes to you at no extra charge. Buy this course once, and you’ll have lifetime access to it and the Q&A section.
7. What if you have questions?
I understand that everyone has a different boss and you may have unique challenges specific to your work situation. It is only natural to have questions as you want to understand the principles and practices shared in the course. In fact, I strongly recommend that you ask any and all questions!
I offer full support, responding to questions you post within one working day.
This means you’ll never be stuck on a topic or concept. Additionally, with my guidance, through Q&A and even after course completion, you can be confident in applying the techniques presented in the course.
8. Zero-risk deal!
You either end up energized and equipped to develop a rewarding relationship with your boss and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…
That's true - You can’t lose!

See you on the course!
Of all the bosses I worked with, I had the privilege of working with Mr.Harish Nayak for 5 years, in Capgemini! Those were amazing 5 years - filled with joint problem-solving, mentorship, debates, aligning, and winning together! It was one of the best learning and growing experience for me! I offer this course to Harish and our time together!
