Managing Your Manager in any Industry

More good lessons on 'managing up'. Although this article is related to the nursing industry, the parallels work for any industry.

As a manager on the rise, you need to train yourself to adapt to your boss. Remember, regardless of how motivated you are, the only way to rise in corporate structure is to excel at the job you currently have.

As a manager, these lessons are valuable in understanding what motivates your employees. A major component in successful management is to ensure your subordinates succeed - by merging their professional and personal goals with yours.
