Jeff Colvin - Managing your Boss
As a fundamental approach to success, Jeff suggests that every employee should learn how to "manage their boss". The boss may be the direct supervisor, a key stakeholder, a senior manager or even a colleague or subordinate that isn't supporting the team. It starts with a collaborative mind set to determine what the drivers are for the other person as well as for yourself. The approach often comes down to truly understanding the other person ("the boss") and determining what their motivators are and how to connect with them. Too often we do not take the extra time and effort to find an elegant solution to conflict or achieving a win/win outcome. Simply starting with a positive end point in mind and seeking to understand the context and challenges from all angles will serve to enhance the results of our efforts In the end it doesn't really matter who is the boss, it matters that you and they have both achieved the desired outcome.
