Webinar: Managing Up & "Mastering" Our Managers
by fergus mellon
Our relationship with our manager is important. It determines our forward career trajectory, reputation in the company, industry and this can carry over even to when we have stopped working for them. More than that though. Our relationship with our manager impacts our level of happiness in our jobs and this contentment can also spillover into our personal lives too.
As this is such a crucial relationship. The goal of this webinar (part of a series hosted by Georgetown University) is to establish actions and strategies for you to build and also maintain the relationship over time so that you and they have a beneficial and productive partnership.
To allow you to master your manager (or maybe just better partner with your manager!) the following areas are covered during the webinar:
- Setting yourself up for success and building the relationship with your manager.
- Working through management change and how to deal with a new leader.
- Hot buttons and how to avoid them. Discuss some of the easy mistakes to make in working with your manager that can damage the relationship.
- Managing conflict with your manager. There are times when we may disagree with our manager and that’s ok. Here we will talk about how to manage the conflict so that the professional relationship is maintained.
