In his letter to Titus, the Apostle Paul gives some very important instructions to those who find themselves subject to masters. If you're an employee, you have a master—your boss. If you're a boss, you have a master—God. So here's what Paul says:
9 Slaves must always obey their masters and do their best to please them. They must not talk back 10 or steal, but must show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. Then they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way. -Titus 2:9-10
If you want to impress your boss, do what he/she asks of you! (Unless it is outside Biblical boundaries.)  Serve without getting angry or gossipping, don't steal from the office, and show yourself trustworthy. Then you'll be a person that's pretty hard to come by these days. More than that, by doing these things, you demonstrate your faithfulness to God because, ultimately, you're serving Him! And people will see Him working through you. Be aware, doing things with excellence makes those who don't, angry. You will probably undergo some persecution for honoring God in your work. Don't worry, your blessed. Jesus says so in Matthew 5:11-12.

Do everything with excellence, without complaining, and do what your asked, that will impress any boss! And God honors that!
