Managing “Up”!

It seems as if I am always speaking with someone who is having “trouble” with their boss; most of the time there seems to be a disconnect between leadership and the needs of the team and the manager in the middle has to split the difference.

To the former point, remember this: your career is not supposed to be one smooth line that has no sharp curves, ups nor downs or surprises. For one thing, what fun would that be? Life is more interesting when there are things to navigate and challenges to overcome; you will likely … Read More

Resolutions That Matter
