Morning Brew

Managing Up, Out, and Down

Are you in line for a promotion, or have you recently received a promotion? Would you like to receive more recognition for your accomplishments, but aren’t comfortable with talking about yourself? Most of us were raised to believe that “it’s not polite to brag”, yet we know there are secrets to getting recognition and respect in the workplace.

In order to be promotable and effective, no matter your level within the organization, you must master the skills of managing up, out, and down. Communicating with senior management takes a different skill set and different messaging than influencing your peers, or leading your staff to accomplish its goals.

Join us for this session as we decode the mysteries of effective positioning without getting overly political. You will come away with new tools and insights:

  • How to hone your priorities and communications to make your boss look like a rock star, and boost your "promote-ability"
  • Ways to understand the communication style and motivations of your peers in order to collaborate more effectively and boost your visibility and influence
  • Keys to engaging your team and getting them to buy into team and company goals
