Publisher's Summary

Are your working relationships working against you?

To achieve your goals and get ahead, you need to rally people behind you and your ideas. But how do you do that when you lack formal authority or when you have a boss who gets in your way or when you're juggling others' needs at the expense of your own?

You can do it by managing up, down, and across the organization. Your success depends on it whether you're a young professional or an experienced leader.

The HBR Guide to Managing Up and Across will help you:

  • Advance your agenda - and your career - with smarter networking
  • Build relationships that bring targets and deadlines within reach
  • Persuade decision makers to champion your initiatives
  • Collaborate more effectively with colleagues
  • Deal with new, challenging, or incompetent bosses
  • Navigate office politics

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Only Once You've Made It!"
    What disappointed you about HBR Guide to Managing Up and Across?

    This is just a series of editorials from people who have already made it to the top. This has nothing to do with building relationships with difficult managers, taking control of your own management environment, or gaining traction in a hostile working environment.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything else.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could be relevant???


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The last thing I need is advice from people who are at the top of the game when I'm trying to find creative ways to advance a company stuck in the mud of the early 80s from a marketing, sales, and operational point of view.

    Story
    "Get the physical copy"

    This book has solid content. It is a collection of articles from the many issues of the Harvard Business Review.

    The main weakness is that there are many charts/spreadsheets in the articles, and the narrator doesn't do a great job of making them accessible for a listening audience. If you're cool with that, it has good advice for managing your social capital at work.

    Story
    "Rehashing old HBR articles"
    Would you try another book from Harvard Business Review and/or Jonathan Yen?

    This book takes old HBR articles and rehashes them. It does not give you true strategies for managing up, but rather talks in very broad generalities. I don't fell like I have a better handle on how to manage up than I did before listening to this book.
