Managing Up

Increase Cooperation and Collaboration

Working successfully with one’s supervisor is critical to workplace success and satisfaction. This workshop helps participants develop highly effective working relationships with their supervisors and peers.

Organizational and career success requires strong and respectful hierarchical relationships. On average, most people, whatever their title or position, spend more time and energy reporting to people above them than having people report to them. Our Managing Up workshop teaches participants how to increase cooperation and collaboration between those who have different power levels and perspectives.

Managing Up helps participants consciously develop highly effective relationships with their supervisors, and learn to obtain the best possible results for themselves, their boss, their peers and their organization.

Participants will learn to:

  • Understand what managers REALLY want from their staff.
  • Understand and manage the personality differences that impact manager/staff relationships.
  • Increase organizational trust with their supervisors and peers.
  • Develop effective strategies for working with their supervisors.
  • Manage their own professional success.
