WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO MANAGE UP?

by Justin Reynolds on Aug 1, 2019 3:02:40 PM

For the most part, employees expect to take direction from their managers. But anyone who’s ever worked for a boss who is disorganized, scatterbrained, or simply overworked knows how difficult it can be to figure out exactly what’s expected of them.

When your manager is spectacularly swamped — or, like a significant majority of other bosses, simply disengaged — tackling your job responsibilities can be a bit tricky if for no other reason than you might not know precisely what they are.

If you find yourself in such a situation, you generally have two options. You could either grit your teeth and try to endure the uncertainty or you can try your hand at “managing up,” a concept that’s generated increasing attention over the last several years.

Quite simply, managing up refers to doing whatever you can to make your boss’s job easier by essentially managing your manager.
