Managers Roundtable: Managing Up - Standing Up for Your Team


The Ellevate Managers’ Program serves as space for people managers to come together once a month for support, advice, and to share in their experiences of building and managing teams.

Wed, Mar 17, 2021 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT

This Week's Topic: Managing Up

Managing up is a challenge you’ve probably already faced. From the start of your career, you are not only managing your time and your efficiency, but also managing other’s expectations of your work.

As you begin to have people who report to you, nobody tells you that you not only have to manage up for yourself, but that you also need to manage up for the people who report to you.

You are your team’s first line of defense, and there will be many times you’ll need to stand up and help them navigate the complex organizational landscape.

Join us for this Roundtable to discuss tips and tricks on how to manage up and make sure you’re clearing the path for your teams to be successful.

This Roundtable is a part of Ellevate's Managers Program.

Ellevate’s five programs (Executives, Entrepreneurs, Managers, Rising Leaders, and Career Changers) offer a variety of flexible ways to learn alongside peers, including Roundtables, Workshops, Mentoring Meetups, and our 12-Week Squads Program.
