The importance of managing up—maintain a good reputation and rise to the top!

As companies reorganize and reengineer, thousands of people are finding themselves tossed into management every day. “You may go to bed as a member of the team and wake up to find yourself suddenly in charge,” says Matuson. The key to success is managing effectively both up and down the line of the organization. And Suddenly in charge provides this unique approach with two books in one: read it in one direction and you’ll find all the tips and tools you need to manage down, establishing credibility with your team and leading in a way that both builds rapport and garners respect. Flip the book over and you’ll find success strategies for managing up, interacting successfully with your bosses and developing strong relationships.
