Product Description

ARE YOUR WORKING RELATIONSHIPS WORKING AGAINST YOU?

To achieve your goals and get ahead, you need to rally people behind you and your ideas. But how do you do that when you lack formal authority? Or when you have a boss who gets in your way? Or when you’re juggling others’ needs at the expense of your own?

By managing up, down, and across the organization. Your success depends on it, whether you’re a young professional or an experienced leader.

The HBR Guide to Managing Up and Across will help you:

  • Advance your agenda―and your career―with smarter networking
  • Build relationships that bring targets and deadlines within reach
  • Persuade decision makers to champion your initiatives
  • Collaborate more effectively with colleagues
  • Deal with new, challenging, or incompetent bosses
  • Navigate office politics

I am a fan of HBR publications. This guide, as well as their numerous other guides are a collaboration of thought pieces across a certain theme. This one happens to pertain to handle people in positions higher than and/or parallel to your own. It is different than managing subordinates, and has thoughtful (if not sometimes common sense, but still good to see framed from a professional perspective) information that most anyone in the business world should benefit from. Like any of the HBR guides, each chapter is perfectly bite sized, and can be read out of order. Short, sweet, and to the point- perfect for busy professionals (or ambitious students) that need a starting point, or a refresher. I have always purchased paperback copies, so I can not comment on the kindle version.

Seems abstracts of originally long articles
Reviewed in the United States on April 5, 2021
I have been reading HBR series. This albulm consists of condenses articles each is about 2-5min reading though I''m not native English speaker. Good content as usual, not only about cross, up management of departments and divisions. But also generations.

Not what I expected
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2019
The content seemed like a collection of disparate magazine articles, none of which I found insightful to the extent that I''d call them helpful or actionable. Much of what was contained seemed like common sense observations.

As a young professional, I found this book to be incredibly helpful. Throughout undergraduate business studies, the ideas and concepts behind managing up are never discussed. Ultimately, my ability to manage up was more critical to my growth than my technical capabilities. After reading this guide, I was able to rework my mindset and relaunch my career growth.

Great book!

I absolutely love this book and suggest it to anyone looking for a quick and interesting read on leadership. Walked away with a lot of very useful information. I especially love the generation chart in the back.

Great selection of articles.

I wish Kindle would have better support for the tables.

Still a great book and worth the money.

Good stuff at times. It does, however, focus on making you become a good ''team player'' or ''office worker''. If you''re more of an independent thinker, or likely to be taken for disagreeable because you want things to happen, then take it with a pinch of salt. Ultimately, (if your bosses can handle it) a bit of conflict is important for an organisation - and this book is designed to stop readers from thinking about ruffling feathers.
