Publisher's Summary

Get what you need from your boss.
In this follow-up to the best-selling It's Okay to Be the Boss, Bruce Tulgan argues that as managers demand more and more from their employees, they are also providing them with less guidance than ever before. Since the number-one factor in employee success is the relationship between employees and their immediate managers, employees need to take greater responsibility for getting the most out of that relationship. Drawing on years of experience training managers and employees, Tulgan reveals the four essential things employees should get from their bosses to guarantee success at work. This book:

Shows employees how to ask for what they need to succeed in their high-pressure jobs
Shatters previously held beliefs about how employees should manage up
Outlines what employees must get from their managers: clear expectations; the skills needed to perform their jobs; and honest feedback, recognition, or rewards
A novel approach to managing up, It's Okay to Manage Your Boss is an invaluable resource for employees who want to work more effectively with their managers.

Food for thought

It is fantastic. He redefined what I thought I understood about a manager relationship. It did not occur to be that those bosses that leave you to do your job until something went wrong was mis-management. Once explained it makes perfect sense and I realise I have been mismanaged for over a decade.
