Managing up is all about making your manager’s life easier.
Why would you want to make their life easier?! Your boss may make the final goal, but there are points for assists, plus the whole team wins when they score. In other words, if you help your boss, they look great and so do you.
It is about learning how to work well with somebody who may work differently than you.” Managing up, therefore, means that you understand your boss’ goals, position, blind spots, and objectives. You help them to meet their expectations and needs.

The truth about relationships is that however you feel about someone, they probably feel the same way about you. Or, at least they can guess how you feel about them.
Ask yourself this: If you don’t want to help your manager by managing up, then why should they want to ...
Remember that your manager is only human. They don’t have superpowers. Like you, your manager has strengths, weaknesses, good and bad personality traits, and personal goals.
They want to have a nice working relationship with everyone and help you (and them) succeed.
The idea is that managing up is a win-win for you, your boss, your team, and your organization. Helping them will help you and your career.

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.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
