If you have a good boss whom you really appreciate, today is the day to let that person know. It's Boss's Day, an unofficial holiday to let your boss know you appreciate him or her.
If you don't get along with your boss, though, maybe you can relate to this article in The Wall Street Journal.
The article lays out some different types of bad bosses, from the boss who tries to be everyone's best friend (think of the fictional Michael Scott character played by Steve Carell in the U.S. version of "The Office") to the boss who rarely has a clue as to what's going on. A telling stat: A recent survey from Kronos Inc., a workforce management company, found that 75 percent of employees would choose a demanding, high-achieving boss over one who is friendly but doesn't get things done.
Of course, whether you love or loathe your boss, life is a lot easier if you can impress your manager. This Business Insider article gives nine scientifically proven ways to impress your boss. A couple of helpful hints: Get to the office early, and wear red.
