Managing up is really the art of relationship management, but you don’t have to be an artist to
master it.  
Managing up is comprised of a bit of all of the following things:  observing, listening, asking
questions, challenging your assumptions, trusting your intuition, accepting yourself and others as

Participants will participate in an interactive session to:

  • Build confidence in approaching your manager

  • Take a central role as both team member and leader
