Live Interview Series: So You Wanna Learn to Manage Up
Recorded On: 03/11/2021
Managing up is a strategy every employee can use to work with a supervisor to get the best possible results for all involved. It can improve relationships, facilitate getting buy-in for your ideas, and help navigate difficult situations—leading to better job satisfaction. In this So You Wanna…? interview, Patrick Parsons will talk with our panelists Allison Reeve Davis, Library Manager at Littler, Kelly Leong, Head of Reference at Fordham Law, and Alex Burnett, Senior Law Librarian at the Law & Legislative Reference Library of the Maine State Legislature. They will discuss what it means to ‘manage up,” why it’s a valuable skill, and what strategies you can use to affect change from any institutional level.
