I’ve heard several government employees talking about managing up. From what I gather, it is basically the idea of stretching your boundaries at work to take on work that will help out your manager. It’s a way to make yourself stand out in the workplace.
Any better definitions out there of “managing up?”
Anyone have any examples of managing up in your career? I’d love to hear your own stories about how you used managing up to further your career.
