Bnet.com published 5 tips to "help" your boss make the "correct" decisions - the ones that benefit you the most...
1 - When your boss organizes a meeting, hijack it:
To land a favorable decision, invite as many allies as possible to the meeting, and prepare them to support your ideas.
2 - Overwhelm him with excessive information:
Make it impossible for him to say you didn't inform him appropriately. Send the longest, most boring report on a subject, adding at the end the ideas or decisions that favor you. Send it yo your boss with the text "FYI". He'll probably never read it.
3 - Make your boss believe he is making the calls:
Make him take decisions that benefit you while still believing he is in charge. Present three possible solutions to a problem, making two of them credible but non-starters.
4 - Always appear overburdened with work:
To avoid being assigned tasks you don't like, always project an image of having way to much to do, looking tired and carrying piles of papers from one place to another.
5 - Provide destructive feedback at the right time for you:
Useful for making him lose focus when about to make a call that is disadvantageous for you. "Stockpile information that will throw your boss off his game. Then, right before the big meeting, provide that information under the guise of being helpful. Example: “I just think you should know that the rumor mill says that the CEO was profoundly unhappy with your work. So go in there and knock ‘em dead!”".
