How to be managed

How to be managed

Take responsibility for your experiences at work, and don't rely on your manager to set the entire tone for your relationship.

  1. Know yourself → Figure out what you want to do and learn, and what will make you happy.
  2. Go after what you want → Prepare for 1-1s, ask to work on projects, ask for feedback etc.
  3. Understand their role → Their job is to do the best thing for the company and the team, not to make you happy all the time.
  4. Own your problems → When you have a problem, ask for advice on how to tackle it instead of demanding that your manager solve it for you.

Ask your manager for non-technical advice

Ask your manager for non-technical advice

  • If you seek a promotion, then ask them what you need to do to get it.
  • If you are giving a presentation or you have written a design document, then ask them to review it and make suggestions.
  • If you are having issues with a teammate and you are unsure of how to tackle them, ask your manager for help on finding a solution.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
