    This is a good, short primer on building a good relationship with your manager. Although the advice is common sense, probably most people don't attempt the most basic steps to improve their working relationship with their manager, such as meeting the manager face-to-face and asking "what are your expectations from me and how to do you prefer to receive information from me?"

    Tips given were common sensical. Didn't learn much new things from it. It was a short read, finished it within a couple of hours, so its suitable for those who are time strapped.

    I wanted to look into the idea of “managing up” because every job I’ve held my direct manager has gone out for maternity or medical leave and this has thrown me into a different management structure than what I was used to. And then when my manager has returned it was yet another adjustment. My immediate response to this book: They were not lying when they said 20 minutes! I actually read this book twice before I sat down to write my response. The good part is, that where I felt this book kept me I wanted to look into the idea of “managing up” because every job I’ve held my direct manager has gone out for maternity or medical leave and this has thrown me into a different management structure than what I was used to.

The good part is, that where I felt this book kept me wanting, they recommend reading the HBR Guide to Managing Up and Across, also by the Harvard Business Review and I already have a copy from the library!

    Navigating negotiations and handling disagreements has always been a difficult task for me. I guess its more to do with my personality type which has a lot of empathy. Post reading Managing Up I realised that there are simpler ways to handle negotiations and express disagreements. It all boils down to knowing your Boss and his priorities. Knowing you organisational goals while speaking to your Boss can always take discussions in a proper direction.

I guess its more to do with my personality type which has a lot of empathy. Post reading Managing Up I realised that there are simpler ways to handle negotiations and express disagreements. It all boils down to knowing your Boss and his priorities. Knowing you organisational goals while speaking to your Boss can always take discussions in a proper direction. Setting your expectations and having a detailed understanding of what you must deliver, helps you align with your Boss. Managing Up gives you tips which can be used to communicate disagreements effectively. Also, making the conversations more "we" centric than "you" centric changes the way we communicate. I liked the last chapter which is about monitoring the relationships. It has ten questions which can be used to review the state of your relationship with you Boss. It helps you take immediate corrective actions. It also gives a scenario on what should you do if you are dealing with a toxic Boss. You can read this book within 20 minutes.
