While recognizing that small adjustments are said to help you stand out from the crowd at work and make you have a better relationship with your boss. And these are three examples:
Worry about the little things
Holmes writes that the legendary rock band of the eighties, Van Halen, was famous for its ingenious tactical control quality. He explains that, hidden within the 53-page contract group, stipulated that the green backstage should be supplied with M & Ms of all colors, except brown. And if they were one of that color, canceled his concert. The logic: if contractors do not read the fine print when it comes to sweets, how could you trust them?

Fails at something
Holmes says that there are two types of failures. The error due to incompetence and arises due to ambition. “A good leader recognizes the difference between the two and respects employees for the second reason,” he writes.
“No risk, after all, is difficult for any company to go ahead,” Holmes says. “A good boss knows that failure and innovation are two sides of the same coin”.
And mentions that it is important to note that not all leaders are able to recognize this type of strategy. “Therefore, these tricks should be used judiciously, especially if you work in a conservative or regulated industry.”
“Having said that, the big bosses know that employees are the key to success” he concludes.
