    "After almost 34 years in our Shaker Heights home and untold contractors, painting companies, and individual freelancers, we have finally found the Reilly expertise, innovation and follow through that make your mother-in-law's testimonials sound modest. Your team was outstanding. The next time I need an out-of-the-ordinary project, I will be sure to call both you for repeated work and your mother-in-law for new recommendations."

  • How To Work For Two Bosses…And Keep Your Sanity

    [caption id="attachment_2130" align="alignleft" width="455" caption="Keeping You Sanity At The Workplace"]The Office[/caption]


    In businesses today, it is common to have more than one boss, or superior who oversees your work....and it can be very frustrating because it's hard to meet both of their expectations. The end result might be the same for both bosses, but most of the time, they will ask you to go about it differently. Jacquelyn Smith of Forbes discusses further, giving us tips and advice for managing the managers, and keeping your sanity too.

    My colleague is an anomaly among the writers here at Forbes. She splits her time reporting to two different editors. She jokes that Editor A owns her right side and Editor B her left, and some days she feels like she is being stretched both ways. But it all works out, because they all communicate well and share the same goals, she says. Editor A thinks that has a lot to do with the culture of our particular workplace. “We work in an environment where people always pitch in and want to help out,” he told her. “We know that everyone is working their hardest, and people just don’t act resentful or put upon here. That makes trust and cooperation much easier.”

    As companies dismantle their old internal walls–as marketing talks more to finance, for instance–more and more people find themselves reporting to multiple bosses. Ideally, everyone involved has the same basic mission, neither boss is trying to outrank the other, and the person being bossed knows exactly what his tasks are and how he’s being measured. In tougher cases, bosses may have conflicting agendas or views of the company’s direction.

    “Communication is the most important part of it,” says Anita Attridge, a career coach with the Five O’Clock Club, a career counseling network. “If your bosses don’t work well together, you have to negotiate with them to arrive at some kind of a win-win situation.” In that situation, says Attridge, explain to them both that Boss A wants one thing and Boss B another, and offer a solution that can meet both of their needs.
