    (Regular Review) All the books by the Harvard Business review in this series mainly aim to improve the work environment's situations in the best possible manner. What is managing up? It is the manner of knowing the manager well and listening to them carefully. It is simply working with your supervisor for a common goal to reach a beneficial relationship. "By failing to manage up means more than simply missing upon benefits. It can be a risky proportion." My favorite three lines from this (Regular Review) All the books by the Harvard Business review in this series mainly aim to improve the work environment's situations in the best possible manner.

"By failing to manage up means more than simply missing upon benefits. It can be a risky proportion." My favorite three lines from this book. “Never take the relationship with your manager for granted. It requires nurturing and periodic reflection” "In negotiations, persuasion is paramount. So the way you package your message is as important as the message itself." "You must know yourself and navigate the differences with your manager." Harvard business review has published a few of the best business books in the world, and this one will never disappoint you.

    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 for working effectively with you manager. Quick read with some useful tidbits. The narration was good. Disclaimer: My enjoyment of the narrator is based on my listening speed. I only leave 5 stars for books I've listened to or will listen to multiple times. I'll update my review if I listen again. Tips for working effectively with you manager.

    My god, what a load of brownnosing shit. I understand the importance of working well with your manager but this book seems to place them on some Christ-like pedestal and says stuff like your manager's needs should take priority over yours. Not a chance, they are buying my labour. Not my soul. My god, what a load of brownnosing shit.

    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.

    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.
