Managing Up
Remote learning | For our partners' teams

Sharpen up your skillset, and build your confidence, to more purposefully engage and influence those working in more senior roles.

The idea of 'managing upwards' has risen recently in popularity, especially in fast-moving cultures where change is a constant, talent moves up quickly and hierarchies can be tough to define. And its taken on a number of interpretations too; but still broadly referencing principles like anticipating our boss’s needs, understanding what motivates them, appreciating the right approach to discussing problems and becoming perceived as a positive and helpful person to those more senior. 

Being able to confidently support and influence those 'above us' can create huge value both to our individual status, and the culture in which we work. In this session we'll share and explore the mindsets and approaches to get us there.

What we'll cover:

• Perspective shift
• Power styles
• Influencing through labeling and reframing
• Deliberate questioning
• Frameworks for upward feedback
• Planning for purposeful conversations

How the session will be structured:

An energising and interactive hour and fifteen minutes, we'll share practical principles for discussion, and in small groups create time for practice and reflection.

Who this session is for:

Anyone keen to develop confidence and capability to have conversations that count with those working in more senior positions.
