Managing Upward

Managing upward is a conscious approach to working with your manager toward mutually agreed-upon goals that are in the best interests of you, your manager, and the organization. It is not mere political maneuvering; rather, it is a process of influencing your manager to make decisions that benefit both of you. Managing up facilitates the entire management process by making use of all available expertise and resources to develop solutions to problems rather than just talking about them, ignoring them, or covering them up.
