“Everyone has a boss, and Managing Up is about working well with the boss you have to increase cooperation and collaboration. Developing effective relationships with our colleagues is important for career success, but developing a positive and productive relationship with our boss is absolutely critical to our success.”
“You may be an extroverted over-communicator who loves meetings. But if your boss is an introverted lone wolf who would rather send an email than meet to face-to-face, you’re going to have to learn some coping mechanisms. Here are some of the different boss types…and how to learn to love them.”
“Working for a troublesome boss can be nothing short of miserable. But you don’t have to feel helpless. You can improve your situation by working better with the boss you already have.”
Managing Up can come with some risks. A “truly terrible” boss may not appreciate your effort to Manage Up to them. When dealing with these types of bosses, it’s OKAY to quit!
