Managing Your Boss

I've written frequently about the concept of 'managing up'.

Now, Joe Tokash, writing in Business West Online, offers four steps to Managing Your Boss:
  1. Choose Good Timing
  2. Understand How Your Boss Prefers Information
  3. Align Understanding
  4. Follow Up and Live Your Word
All excellent steps. Remember - as a boss, it's up to you to encourage and foster communication with your employees. As an employee - it's equally up to you in order to proactively deliver that same communication.
