The Tricky Business of Managing Up

Apr 29, 2022 | Career, Leadership

What is it about managing up that seems so challenging?

Some people do it with ease, but most of us have difficulty with it at some stage in our career. There’s a good reason for this. We were often raised not to promote ourselves, or to respect the hierarchy.

The challenge is that if we don’t build good relationships up as well as down the line, then we may miss out on opportunities for new roles or even promotion.

In this episode Jean shares

    • Insights into why we find this so difficult
    • How we can shift our mindset
    • Practical ways to manage upwards without compromising our values.
