Summary of Suddenly in Charge
Managing Up, Managing Down, Succeeding All Around
Managing your direct employees is important. Managing your boss is crucial.
Career expert and author Roberta Chinsky Matuson knows that to succeed you must get along with your boss and with those who report to you. Her book features a unique format: Start at the front of the book with the “Managing Up” cover, read the text that follows and learn how to manage your boss. Flip the book over, open the “Managing Down” cover and learn how to manage your team. Thus, the author provides two separate books with two separate covers within the same binding. Despite a few sloppy details here and there, getAbstract believes that Matuson’s book will help you become a better manager and advance your career.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to manage your boss
- How to manage those who report to you
- How to negotiate the ins and outs of office politics
- How to deal with bad bosses
- How to recognize when you’re about to be fired
