Good morning. It’s Tuesday September 5, 2017 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

3 tips on managing up comes to us today from Tina Tung-Barisic,  Executive Director of Marketing, The Dr. Oz Show  

  • When your supervisor poses a question or asks you to work on a project, make it an immediate priority.  Respond promptly and even if you don’t have an answer yet, let him or her know that you are working on one ASAP.
  • Don’t be a yes man (or woman).  If you disagree with your supervisor on an issue, speak up but also have a clear reason for why you have a difference in opinion.  Even if they are initially unhappy that you are not on board, in the long run, they will respect you more for speaking your mind and having your own perspective.
  • When faced with a problem, don’t march into your boss’s office and blurt out the issue.  Think through possible solutions and scenarios.  Do research to see if those scenarios are viable.  Then,  armed with that knowledge, present the problem and offer choices for solutions.
