The Leadership Coaching Group

Nov 6, 2017

What does it really mean to “Manage Up?” There are a lot of articles out there that talk about the need to manage up when you have a bad boss.  TLCG partner Richard Rieckenberg, and TLCG owner, Liz Roney, discuss the more nuanced philosophy of managing up and why it is everyone’s duty to properly manage up the leadership chain.  If you are interested in 1:1 coaching with Richard or Liz, email


Here are some thinking points from today’s episode:

  • Do you know how to convince your manager to help when you have an unmet need at work?
  • Managing up is NOT just limited to dealing with bad bosses.
  • Often employees know the answers to problems better than the leader does. Therefore, a leader has to create an environment where their staff will share their suggestions and the team has to be willing to improve their situation.  There is a shared responsibility between everyone in the group.
