a peculiar problem ! i am tasked maximum in my office, all peculiar assignments are coming to me everytime. i am doing all and finishing them within the given time with more then the expected standard, but auth does not feel to recognize these.
what i found, my boss does not accept a confident staff. he prefers a somehow confused character. once he is assigning me and if i tell, 'sir no prob, it will be done'.- he is not liking this. but once i express some how hesitating and asking boss about the very guideline for the accomplishment of his assignment, he looks happy.
any suggestion from any of my friends in this line?

there are good bosses and bad bosses. your boss may be a bad boss but this will be difficult to proof. reasons for your boss' behaviour may include the following:-
your boss may fall within the group of bad bosses. this is because of the following reasons:-
1. fear of losing position- he may be afraid that you will be able to take his position soon if you prove to be very good
2. career development- he prefers people who are not good so that, he can tie them down to the same positon for a long time without training them or developing their career. this will be a good excuse to his superiors for not developing and promoting staff.
3. lack of skills in delegation
4. some psychological impairment which make him afraid when others proof to be good
5. lack of good example from his superiours. maybe, your boss' superiors do not help matters or your boss also suffered similar treatment from them so he is trying to visit it on others.
6. poor interpersonal relations.
hope this will help.

infact, now a days we have changed our behavioral pattern with him. once he assigns us we give a confused look to him showing the attitude that the task is very difficult. then we ask for his sugestion for accomplishing that. then he smiles and gives a happy look.
another peculiarity is if someone is found serious with job and finishing jobs in the desired time with desired standard, he gets tasks and tasks in the series manner, whereas others in the office found relaxing though they remain busy with flattering the boss.

hi, i am sure you are gradually learning the tricks of the trade. Just remember one thing - do things which you feel right inwardly. It is important to work with integrity. At times we conscioulsy lose a battle to win a war but always remain focused on your goal.
I personally have worked with varied kinds of bosses - rude, insecure, helpful, supportive etc. There was always something to learn from each one of them - what finally it was my choice to adopt/avoid some of the qualities to become a good manager myself.
All the best. :lol:
