It’s pretty much the most important relationship you have in the workplace. How do we know? Because most coaching sessions conducted almost always feature a discussion about ‘my manager’ and how she or he is ‘not treating me correctly’.
In this pod session, you discuss and explore with your fellow podsters:
That there is a mutual dependence between you and your manager
Tactics for understanding your manager better;
Options for how to build a positive relationship to achieve your desired objectives (hopefully win/win);
Explore some techniques / key tips / ‘killer questions’ to help you manage up successfully;
The conversations that need to be had, and with your podsters, practice these conversations in the safety of the pod.
Your relationship with your manager is career critical - these two hours will ensure you manage the relationship professionally and get the benefits from a good relationship with one of the key people who can help you achieve your career objectives. (Or make your life a misery!)
