You also need to “upmanage” and make sure your boss thinks you’re dependable, focused and a team player. Also try to be proactive and ask questions to show that you’re a good listener. When they answer your question, leave a pregnant pause after they’ve finished talking. You might elicit further information from them – and that’s likely to be the really tasty stuff that you can use to get your own point across.
