Oftentimes, great leaders come in the form of a boss or supervisor. They often exemplify what it takes to get ahead and will model, whether directly or via mentorship, how you can do the same.

When you really pay attention, watch and learn, you’ll find that it’s not always what your boss does that’s telling, but what they don’t do. Brazen Careerist offers 4 smart habits you should mimic that aren’t about action, but the avoidance of it:

1. Don’t drag out emails.
2. Don’t be afraid to push back.
3. Don’t take “no” as “never.”
4. Don’t forget about the competition.
