Subtle Art of Managing Up

Managing up is a conscious process of working with your boss to obtain the best possible results for you, your boss and the organization. It is not a simple matter of “getting along” with the boss. It is about truly recognizing the value of the relationships, getting to know your boss, and getting to know yourself. To manage up you need to take specific steps to build and nurture a mutually beneficial relationship control.
