As one climbs the professional ranks, they are expected to share their ideas and feedback more and more – this is how organizations advance. Even if not expressly encouraged to do so, people identify opportunities for improvement, and want to contribute. However, it can be difficult to influence decisions when those leaders have a different perspective.
Our 3-hour workshop provides participants new skills to engage and influence their supervisors on matters on which they might not agree, as well as prepares them to provide critical feedback to their supervisors. They learn how to express their views without jeopardizing relationships with people key to their professional success. In this half-day workshop, we will achieve these objectives:
- Review when managing up is appropriate
- Discuss barriers to manage up
- Practice tools to help you manage up
