Leadership isn’t about being on top, it’s about being in the middle. This means that you not only have to learn how to manage those on your team, but also that you must develop the ability to manage up in order to get what you and the team need to succeed.

On this episode, we share a few key principles for entering into difficult conversations with your manager:

  1. Approach the conversation with respect and assume the best.
  2. Have your supporting facts in order and make your case clearly.
  3. Aim for small wins and build from there.
