I work in Asia, where the culture is more about "respecting seniors" and "obeying what the seniors said". Growing up in this environment, I am still used to being polite, respectful, and acting formal with seniors. However, it seems that the western culture courages "individual thinking" and a "flat organization". I am thinking of how to deepen my relationship with my boss, and adding a bit of personal angle. I feel that I am too "serious" when talking to my boss. Any suggestion would be great!
