They can make your life hell, or you can learn to manage them and equip yourself for your next career move at the same time. It’s time to flip your thinking and to make the situation work for you!

In Fear – Trump in the White House, famed journalist Bob Woodward, describes how even the most senior and closest of Donald Trump’s advisers manage him and prevent him from making decisions.

Key to successful upwards management is understanding what makes the manager think and act as they do.
