Managing Up: To many people, this phrase smacks of manipulation, “cozying up”, or out-and-out apple polishing performed by those seeking merely to advance in their careers. But managing up is none of these things. Managing up is a conscious approach to working with your manager toward mutually agreed-upon goals. It is a process of influencing your manager to make decisions that benefit both of you as well as the organization. In this highly interactive course you will learn:

-Strategies for forging a strong partnership with your boss through understanding:

-The power differential, your manager and yourself

-Ideas for effectively communicating with your boss and handling disagreements including:

-Understanding your manager’s communication style

-Using listening, questioning and sharing to boost productivity
