Dealing with the boss, for most employees, is one of the trickiest parts of any job.

While the thumb rule is to follow orders and have formal interactions with one's boss, once in a while, it might help to have an informal discussion.

How do you ask for a raise?

What is it that you must do to grow in your career? 

What are the things holding you back? How to overcome one's weaknesses?

To know the answers, join us for a chat with Utkarsh Rai, author of the book Faster, Smarter, Higher on Thursday, May 12, 2016 between 3 pm and 4 pm IST.
