As a young professional, “managing up” is probably something we have all encountered in the workplace, either from our own experiences or from those around us. Working with your boss to ensure you meet, even exceed, his/her needs so that you can ultimately work your way up in the company is smart. However, where is the line between going above expectations and “brown-nosing?” While you may be familiar with both, this topic is not one on which you took a college class. In “Managing Up: Positioning Yourself for Success with Your Supervisor,” trainer and consultant Ken Jacobs will help us all get a better grip on:
· What “managing up” is and isn’t
· Nine tips on how to manage up more effectively
· How managing up benefits you
· How to make your boss the best boss for you
The webinar starts at 2 p.m. (EST) on Thursday, July 7. Interested in learning a little more about Ken Jacobs? Check out his website.
