Managing and Influencing Up: Positioning Yourself, Your Manager and Your Organization for Success
Presenter: Joseph Dupont
Thursday, November 19th - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Managing Up is a key to personal and organizational success. In recent years, however, the phrase has become so popular it runs the risk of becoming a buzz term rather than a way of describing a key skill that helps your career, benefits your boss and positions your organization for greater success.

In this session, you will learn concrete strategies and specific takeaways for being more fulfilled at work, building an effective relationship with your manager, and helping your organization become more impactful as you move up the organizational chart.
