Q. My boss hates his job and his life. He’s cynical about everything, and no matter what I do he doesn’t seem to champion my cause. I’ll never move up with him in the way. Am I stuck?

A. That’s up to you. If you don’t take evasive action, you’ll wither on the vine. Find an influential executive at your organization whom you can impress. Also build relationships with vendors, suppliers, colleagues and consultants. By proving your worth all around, you won’t need to rely on your cranky boss. Above all, don’t let his cynicism rub off on you. Cut the time you spend chatting with him. Instead, surround yourself with winners.
