Managing Your Boss – 30 Years Later

In 1980, one of the most significant articles on modern leadership was published in the Harvard Business Review – “Managing Your Boss,” by John J. Gabarro and John P. Kotter changed conventional wisdom from a didactic (‘the boss tells you what to do’) into a collaboration between employee and employer.

Nearly 30 years later, those concepts are as important as ever. And ‘managing up’ is a critical component in my book, “Managing People in the 21st Century”.

If you manage people, encourage your employees to manage up. If you have a boss (and it’s likely you do), make sure you understand the world he/she operates in – what his or her goals and objectives are.

The key to successful leadership is communication.

A conversation with the authors of that article is posted at forbes.com.
