Leadership Essentials: Managing Upwards

Your relationship with your manager is one of mutual dependence, and this relationship is crucial for the success of both yourself and your organisation. Managing your boss involves thoughtful and straightforward relationship building, and open and honest communication as opposed to devious manipulation or political manoeuvring.  Once you are aware what impedes or facilitates communication with your boss, you can act to improve it.  

‘Leadership Essentials: Managing Upwards’ provides an overview of why managing upwards is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how managing upwards can help you become a better leader.

The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at aspects of managing upwards in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:

  • Followership
  • Managing Your Boss
  • Co-Creation
