Maybe not the sort of boss Seth Rogan is in this video…
Maybe not even the type of boss who dictates to an entire office of subordinates that they need to tie your shoes, groom your hair, and file your nails.
But a boss nonetheless.
A boss who knows they need to be a little bit more approachable in the way they demand the things they need to have done for them.
Being gracious is your biggest asset. Because that’s how you get your servants to do your bidding.
However, you’re doing it in a truly awesome, gentle, humorous way.
Here’s an example: You need one of the people around you to handle making copies of a presentation for you, collating them and making sure they are on your desk by 10 am.
In the old days, maybe you’d have a cigarette hanging from your lips. A scotch in your hand. You’d scream at the top of your lungs: “I NEED COPIES FROM ONE OF YOU FREAKS.”
Turns out, in 2019, that’s not the most fabulous way to deal with people.
Now, you put out this handy little Do Me a Favor memo pad. You write down what you “Would be very grateful” for this, the smallest of favors.
You can even toss in some nonsense compliment, so the person on the receiving end of this feel good about themselves.
You secretly leave it on their desk. The person sees it, smiles to themselves, and completes your project on time, and correctly, all the while thinking, “What a kind, humorous person my boss is!”
So you get what you need without screaming at the top of your lungs, and your people think you’re the kindest, most “with it” boss ever.
Now you can even use the memo pad to take care of business everywhere.
Imagine getting what you need to be done at the house.
Back in the day, it would be slogging through the morning trying to get your partner to do any sort of something for you, while you lay in bed half hungover from those tropical island Sea Breeze drinks that were probably made of corn mash liquor, but hey, they were only $2.
But now, you could cleverly leave a note on your partners’ pillow, fancifully asking for anything.
Even a pleasant good morning rendezvous under the sheets.
Righteous, bro. Righteous. You nasty (and we like it).
