Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage, speaks with The Miami Herald on the topic of "Managing Up" - a critical skill in today's workplace.
Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage PEO, a Fort Lauderdale HR services provider, urges caution: Don’t get managing up confused with sucking up.
Managing up, he says, is good communication. "It’s making sure that your manager is getting from you what they need in order to do their job and look good to their boss.” By managing up, you deliver information in the style and manner your manager prefers, “not the way you would want it if you were in their position.”
