Q: I’m an accounting supervisor, pretty low on the totem poll here. My boss seems jealous of my relationship with the senior vice president, whom I have known for years through our families. My boss seems to distrust me, even though I’ve explained the situation.

A: If you’ve leveled with your boss, don’t worry about it. Just don’t go out of your way to pal around with the senior VP at work, especially with your boss present. And take steps to reassure your boss that you’re trustworthy, such as arranging for a bigwig to praise his performance.
