Course description

The Art of Managing Up

Managing up – this may be the most valuable “soft skill”' you will need to “manage” your own career. This isn’t about brown-nosing; it's about understanding your boss, knowing who you are, and building real relationships with the people who have influence over your career. Managing up done correctly is good for you, good for your boss, and good for the organization. This session gives you strategies for developing these all-important connections and building more than rapport; you will learn how to quickly assess situations and determine which actions will move things forward. It’s a skill that can do more for your career than simply networking ever could.
