How to Manage Your Boss

Is this something you do or did at one point in your career? Is it worth the time?

Those who manage their boss say — absolutely. Others say absolutely not because they see it as flattery and manipulation. With these different definitions and views, we will have a very interesting people skills Twitter chat (#peopleskills).

Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • What meaning do you attach to the phrase ‘manage your boss’?
  • When have you found it valuable, if at all?
  • Exactly what does managing your boss entail?
  • How do flattering and managing differ?
  • How can you learn/understand what your boss expects?
  • What have you done when you disagreed with your boss?
  • How do you influence your bosses without looking like a threat to them?
  • When you manage your boss, what is the impact on your peers?
  • What can bosses do to make interaction easy and productive?
  • Are emotional intelligence & people skills essential to managing your boss? How or why not?

These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

So bring your personal perspective, your experience, a beverage, and join the community on Sunday Aug. 24, 2014, 10am EDT in People Skills Chat on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills). Share your creative views and experience in our people skills chat on how to manage your boss.
