Managing Up

Managing Up (also Managing Upwards) is the art of convincing one's superior(s) that a particular action or actions will result in positive outcomes for either the team involved and/or the organisation as a whole.

One key enabler for successfully managing up is building a strong and successful working relationship with a superior, manager, or employer.


  • Get to know your boss and what motivates them
  • Understand what things cause problems for your boss
