Managing upwards refers to the interaction between employees and managers in an organization. It is the responsibility of managers to communicate clearly and effectively with their direct reports. This includes offering employee job performance feedback, establishing objectives and expectations, and actively listening to employee complaints and recommendations. In contrast, it is the responsibility of workers to manage upward by listening to and carrying out the directives of their managers, as well as by demonstrating respect for the company's rules and fulfilling all deadlines. When employees and supervisors collaborate to manage upward, a positive atmosphere can be created in which all workforce members feel appreciated, respected, and supported.
Many business professionals face a big challenge at work: aligning our priorities with our supervisors'. Knowing our manager's values and how they prefer to work and communicate allows us to work more effectively and provide a wider range of options. This training will equip participants with the tools and skills to collaborate effectively with their bosses. It will assist them in changing their approach to create positive professional relationships with their manager to improve their abilities and efficiency. This training will benefit business people who wish to build great working relationships with their bosses and possibly open new career paths.
