The reality of today’s workplace is that individual success depends not just on how well you do your job, but on how well your supervisor does theirs.

A supervisor’s role is not one of command and control, but of collaborationjust as much as your efforts influence theirs, theirs influence yours. When they’re unable to meet deadlines, accomplish goals, and fulfill expectations, those unmet obligations inevitably become yours, and the communication between you can suffer greatly. The principles of managing up are designed to make your supervisor’s life easier. However, you’ll find that becoming in tune with their needs and supporting their daily obligations in turn, benefits you. Your work life will run smoother, you’ll encounter less conflict, and you’ll make a positive impression on your supervisor, ultimately forging a successful relationship.

This virtual instructor-led training event will provide you with the tools you need to be able to work well with your supervisor. This three hour-program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
