Panel Discussion: "Managing Up and Taking Control of Your Career".
The value of a good relationship is that it gives you a solid foundation when stressful times arise. Without one, you don’t have the open communication and sense of trust needed to resolve issues quickly. You should always have a strategic plan to “manage up” and figure out how to work with your manager more effectively. Managing up is about building real relationships with people who have influence over your career.
Managing up is good for you, good for your boss, and good for the organization as a whole. It helps you build the sort of relationships that foster more communication, collaboration, cooperation, and understanding between people at different levels of power, with a variety of perspectives and skills. This type of bridge-building builds your reputation for effectiveness and fit, so you can start skipping rungs on the ladder as you build a strong, successful career.
