It is quite possible that certain employees are not trusted by the manager, and there is a lack of confidence in their abilities. The employees are given lower-quality work or are micro-managed.
To rehabilitate the bosses trust, one has to first clarify the expectations and ask specific questions laying down what they want from you.
Watch the level of eye contact to understand if there is a likeability problem between you and your boss. It is possible that your boss may not like you, or not relate to you, which is quite common.
Communication is key here, and one can find the areas that the boss is working on, or is interested in, and carry a conversation that can help both of you know each other well.
Humans have a negative bias and tend to create or personalize any problem even when there are many factors that are not in one’s knowledge.
Do not be a leech just because you have this hunch that the boss doesn’t like you. It also not a good idea to complain or gossip about your boss to others, as word-of-mouth is fast.
Work towards developing and strengthening your relationship with your subordinates, peers and colleagues.
Your boss will not be able to maintain a poor image of you when there are many who speak good about you. Invest in building deep professional relationships instead of being dependent on one person that does not seem to favour you.
