Managing Up

Have you been wondering "How do I get management to be on board?". Well, you are not alone. From almost every organization I engage with, this is one of the most common questions I get. As more teams embrace agility to discover valuable outcomes, there has been a continued increase in workplace conflicts. This stems from many best practices, processes and leadership approaches that were initially created for well-defined outcomes, which rarely supports the big problems organizations face today. As a result, this conflict often presents as a showdown between teams versus management. Yet, this path can have fewer potholes. For alignment, organizations, leaders and teams have to change and we all know how much people love change. So how we approach this question makes a huge difference. For example, are you considering and positioning the change in terms of benefits for a wide variety of stakeholders? Or are you highlighting why the change is motivating to you and your team? Join Tricia Broderick, as she shares workplace example insights and techniques that help to address the concerns of how to effectively manage up to get the results everyone desires.
