Get a comb and comb it like your boss requested preferably with your head upside down, if you look anything like I do when my hair is combed out he will never ever ask you to do that again!! Or e-mail him a few links to videos/ photos of curly girls with similar wave patterns to yours after brushing. There is a thread on here on NC somewhere plus YouTube vidoes, Diana Ross in Chain Reaction looks amazing with her hair all brushed out but probably not the look your boss was hoping for.
