Webinar Overview
Managing UP, How to Move UP and Win at Work with ANY Type of Boss

Managing up will be the most valuable 'soft skill' you can develop!

It's not about sucking up or brown-nosing; it's about figuring out who you are, who your boss is, and finding where you meet. It's 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. Mary will share strategies for developing these all-important connections and building more than rapport; you will become able to quickly assess situations, and determine which actions will move you forward; you will become your own talent manager, and your boss's top choice for that new opportunity. 

As a skill, managing up can do more for your career than simply 'networking' ever could—and this presentation will show you how!

You will learn how to:

  • Develop robust relationships with influential people.
  • Enhance your self-awareness and become more adaptable.
  • Gain new opportunities and accelerate your career.
  • Stop 'schmoozing' and develop true, lasting connections.
Join Mary’s talk to learn how you can  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.   You won't regret investing the hour!
