Q: My boss is a cocky SOB who’s lousy at their job. Anything I can do about it?

Woman making annoyed face at someone while on the phone at work. James says....
If they’re truly lousy, chances are you can look forward to a new one in the near future. In the meantime, take initiative by meeting other managers and higher-ups in your company over coffee. Ask questions, pick their brain. People love to give advice (exhibit A: me doing this column), so learn as you go. But if you’re vying for your boss’ job and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon, call me.
