PCI Webinar with Sonya Schryer Norris

Managing Up

Wednesday, March 30th from 11:00am - 12:00 pm 

This presentation is for you if:

  • You like your boss, and your boss likes you.
  • You are concerned because your manager has taken to eating kittens for breakfast during the pandemic.
  • Your manager is GUILTY of selling out their staff, the profession, or Santa Claus.

All of that may be true. I don’t know your boss. Let’s talk about managing up. Your capacity to influence your manager is directly tied to key capacities that you have sole control over. In this hour, we’ll talk about cultivating your capacity to manage:

  • Being easy to say “No” to.
  • When it’s all about you: tell the truth.
  • Accepting clarity as kindness.
  • What does your boss want? Give it to them.
