Unless the employee feels targeted for some reason or a recent issue has been handled in an unprofessional manner, most relationship issues are a matter of differing perspectives. Personalities aside, the best way to address this problem is to have a conversation with your boss. Don't be confrontational, simply express a desire to be more effective and build a stronger working relationship. Then, let your boss say what's on their mind. If the issue is too severe for a face-to-face chat, elicit the help of the HR department or a colleague who has a great relationship with your boss. Sometimes, seeing what others do will help you understand what you need to do.
