Course description

Managing Upwards - In-house Course

Bosses display a variety of core behaviours and, in order to work with them effectively, it is important to recognise those behaviours and adopt an assertive frame of mind. The Managing Upwards programme provides a framework to help people build strong and resonant communication based on an understanding of different communication styles.

On completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise core behaviours using the Social Styles Model
  • Adapt communication style
  • Become an effective listener
  • Understand how to communicate assertively to achieve a Win-Win situation
  • Develop questioning skills
  • Identify types of manager behaviours and adapt different techniques and approaches as necessary
  • Use the DELIA framework when engaged in difficult conversations
