Managing upwards

Through empathizing with and understanding your team, you can manage upwards with confidence and impact.

Participants will:

  • Discover how to see things from the other's perspective, not as "you in their shoes" but as them
  • Consider how they think about the relationship may be getting in the way and what they can do about it
  • Identify and deal with different power styles such as the "consulter" and the "evangelist"
  • Investigate a range of practical techniques to manage people who have more power than them, which will make that person's life easier and probably theirs too
  • Decide on the changes they would most like to see in their boss or another powerful person and what they can do to help make that happen
