The Role of Challenge: when and how to challenge effectively

Work may challenge us in many ways. This week’s daily webinars will focus on those components of MyLeadership that help us respond and meet these different challenges.


Managing Upwards

Managing your boss involves thoughtful and straightforward relationship building, and open and honest communication as opposed to devious manipulation or political manoeuvring. This webinar considers what is needed to make those important upward relationships effective.
