With People Outside Your Team

  • Understand fully what your boss wants from you and your team so you'll be better able to meet with their approval.
  • Ask your boss to coach or mentor you.You can usually learn a lot from him, but he may not be proactive about offering this. Think through things as far as you can before you approach them.
  • Look after your team and protect it from unreasonable pressure. Learn skills like assertiveness and win-win negotiation, so you can turn work away or negotiate additional resources.
  • Manage interactions with other groups.Use stakeholder analysis to identify groups relevant to you as well as what they want and what they offer.
