Bosses abound. You’ve probably had one or two. Maybe you are one. This talk parts the veil of secrecy surrounding ancient mystical boss-managing techniques developed by a now defunct monastic order.
Okay, not all of that is true. But I’ve had a ton of bosses and I’ve been a boss for a long time. I’ll share some tried and true techniques for “managing up.” And it’ll be fun. With pictures.
Husband, Quaker, dad, surfer, MBA, skater, bike rider, reader, snowboarder, blogger, boss. I read Drucker for fun and I skate Newberg to get my angst out. I prefer fountain pens to ballpoints and I don’t drink enough water. I’m a Fortune 500 refugee basking in the non-profit sun of higher education. I created and wrote a leading business-oriented blog, and sold it when it stopped being fun. I’m not intimidated by silence. Personal motto: “Begin, again!”
