    Time: 8:00am - 10:30am

    Fee - $40 Members / $50 for Non-Members


    We have all heard of the concept of ‘managing your boss’.   It sounds pretty sinister, but in essence, it involves utilizing your relationship management skills for accelerated productivity.  It is a skill that often does not get the attention it deserves and can sometimes be overlooked.  Our HR competency model includes the behavioral competency of Relationship Management.  This competency focuses our ability to manage interactions while providing services in support of organizational goals.   Many times leadership presentations focus on how to manage others, meaning how to manage and lead those that you directly supervise.  However, it is just as important to build productive relationships with your boss or ‘manage up’.  How to manage the relationship with your boss is a skill that requires the use of several practical tactics that will result in more success.  Join Dr. Milton J. Perkins, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, CPC, for this edutaining discussion about how to build your Relationship Management competency and utilize several next-practice tips to successfully build a productive relationship.
