It’s Okay to Manage Your Boss™
Managing people is harder and more high-pressure today than ever before. There’s no room for down time, waste, or inefficiency. You have to do more with less. And employees have become high maintenance. They look to their immediate boss to help them get what they need and want at work. Learn dozens of best practices to help leaders, managers, and supervisors get much better at leading, managing, and supervising. In this program, Bruce helps non-management employees learn dozens of best-practices to better manage themselves, their managers, and help their managers give them the guidance, direction and support they need.
Objectives: After this program, participants will be better able to:
- Build relationships of trust and confidence with their managers.
- Seek appropriate guidance, direction and support from their managers.
- Take on new tasks, responsibilities and projects.
- Stay focused at work and moving in the right direction.
- Increase their individual work productivity and quality.
- Keep track of their own performance and report regularly to their managers.
- Reduce waste, inefficiency, errors, down-time, and conflict with other employees.
- Learn, grow, and go the extra mile in their jobs.
