Pimp Your Work

Thinking like management

by Celine on November 30th, 2007

Brian over at TheJobBored has an interesting post entitled “How to think like management (and how doing so can help your career)”.  I thought I’d share it with you, since it raises some very interesting points:

  1. Know management’s pressure points.
  2. Anticipate and offer solutions.
  3. Understand the interpersonal.
  4. Talk to your boss.
  5. Make your boss look bad.
  6. Make your boss look  good.
  7. Anticipate the good decisions management might make, and share the credit.
  8. Anticipate the bad decisions management might make, and get out of the way!
  9. Think like the CEO.

To get the more detailed (and I really mean detailed) version, head on over to Brian’s post.   I’ve said similar things in the posts A 6 Step Guide on How to Earn the Love of your Boss and Top 7 Ways to Make Your Boss Hate You.  Use the above tips with the previous posts I linked to, and you’ll be well on your way to office domination.  Which could be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective.
