Your Boss’s boss? Be Careful!

How to step up and level up

If you are hardworking and you are eager to grow, but your manager isn’t that helpful or nurturing, what do you do? How do you get noticed by top management without bypassing your direct manager?

A great article helps us in this area. So I’m focusing this week’s blog and this week’s podcasts on the points from the article.

So how do you get noticed by your boss’s boss? Ready? Here we go!

1.   Invest in additional skills and knowledge that will help you grow. Ask your boss and boss’s boss for books or resources that will give you success.

2.   Be a team player. Help your teammates.
