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.
