Workplace relationships can be difficult and complex. You may feel like you are spinning your wheels, just going through the motions, or stuck with a toxic manager. The key to a great career? Having the right relationship with your manager and leaders. Manage Up is a training program that gives you strategies, techniques and tools to improve your career and relationships with your managers.

 

Managing Up is the practice of using an understanding of how your manager works to create a healthy, engaged and conducive work environment for yourself and the company. 

 

Managing Up has never been more important in the new post-covid remote work environment. With less face and in-person time, you cannot take your working relationship with your manager for granted. Getting recognized for your work, helping your manager advocate for you and holding them accountable for your specific growth and development needs could make all the difference during the next promotion season, or even worse: layoffs. 

 

Managers can be challenging to handle, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Whether you’re in a job, or considering potential opportunities. You can learn how to manage up and get the best out of your manager, no matter what kind of leadership style they have. With this program, you will learn how to create more powerfully positive working relationships with your bosses and leaders by focusing on the management aspect of your job
