When people say the words "managing up" they often think of incompetent managers with whom they can’t stand to work. Always micromanaging, giving vague feedback, and forcing you to work overtime. But managing up isn't about trying to "fix" a bad manager.
Managing up is about building a better relationship with good managers to bring out the best in you as an employee.
Sounds good, but how do you start? And will your boss embrace these changes?
