Working Successfully with Any Type of Boss
Learn proven strategies and techniques to increase cooperation and collaboration between those who have different power levels, perspectives, and personalities.
Whether we like it or not, our bosses or those above us have enormous influence over our ability to succeed in our organization and in our career.
Working for a difficult boss is a challenge and at times even torturous. And navigating this dynamic can demolish your morale, motivation and productivity.
We’ve all heard the saying (and maybe even followed through on it): People don’t quit their jobs, they quit their managers.
But looking for another job doesn’t have to be your only option.
You can learn to understand and create an effective, productive working relationship with the boss you already have.
Establishing strong, productive working relationships with those above us is the single most effective way to accelerate success in any organization.
Whether you are reporting to a supervisor, middle manager, VP, top executive, or a board of directors, managing up is a skill that every leader needs.
And no matter what type of manager you are reporting to and struggling with – brand-new, virtual, insecure, long-winded, all-knowing, conflicting…there are universal skills to help you deal with any and every manager you are facing or will face.
This lively and informative webinar provides proven strategies and techniques to increase cooperation and collaboration between those who have different power levels, perspectives, and personalities. Learning to effectively manage up is good for you, good for your boss, and good for your organization. In this session, you will learn how to:
- Learn to work with the boss they actually have, and not the one they wish they had!
- Understand and manage personality differences that impact manager/staff relationships
- Recognize different leadership styles and explore adaptive strategies for communicating and collaborating with each style
- Understand their own and their supervisors “hot buttons”
- Increase organizational trust among their managers and peers
- Take ownership for one's own professional success
