- Have you ever quit a job because of an unbearable boss? Have you ever worked for somebody that simply drove you crazy? If so, you are definitely not alone. Research shows us that one of the top reasons why people leave their jobs is because of you guessed it, bad bosses. Studies also tell us that 75% of employees say that their boss is the most stressful part of their day, but guess what? It doesn't have to be this way. Instead, you can learn to manage up. Hi, my name is Mary Abbajay, and I am passionate about helping people succeed with their bosses and succeed in their careers. I'm the author of "Managing Up: How to Move Up, "Win at Work, and Succeed with Any Type of Boss." Over the last 20 years, I've helped thousands and thousands of leaders and teams develop productive and positive workplace relationships, and I can do the same for you. In this course, we're going to explore some basic, simple, yet effective and pragmatic strategies to work well with the boss that you actually have, not the boss you wish you had, regardless of whether you are co-located, in the same physical space, or you're working remotely. We'll explore some tools and techniques to not only identify what kind of boss you have, but how to work well with that boss and navigate their personality. Working well with your boss is essential to achieving your career goals.
