Managing Up is a guide to the most valuable “soft skill” one’s career has ever seen. It’s not about sucking up or brown-nosing; it’s about figuring out who one is, who one’s boss is, and finding where those meet. It’s about building real relationships with people who have influence over one’s career. This book offers strategies for developing these all-important connections and building more than rapport; enabling readers to become able to quickly assess situations and determine which actions will move them forward, become their own talent manager and their boss’s top choice for that new opportunity. As a skill, managing up can do more for one’s career than simply “networking” ever could.
