Managing Upward: Strategies for Succeeding With Your Boss
Reviewer/Reader Feedback: "Starting from very basic skills of setting goals (personal and company), and effective communication it moves into more advanced skills such as reading your boss, your boss's work style, and "the Care and Feeding of a Boss." I particularly liked these more advanced chapters giving tools to review and recognize your boss's working method, evaluate and categorize behaviors he uses, and you use in response, and approaches to use that will mesh the two working styles into a team. Learning what bosses want, (and what they don't want) was also very helpful and gave me several items to implement in my own job: communicating about completed assignments, praising my boss to encourage specific behaviors, and how to improve in needed areas. I am grateful that I do not need the chapter covering dreadful bosses, but it was very enlightening and a very good review of choices that can be made in those circumstances."
