I have absolutely loved the CU-only threads that have been started recently and wanted to start one of my own in case it comes time for this feature to no longer be available.
So, my question is this: what are some of the strategies, stories, best practices, etc., that some of you guys have when it comes to "managing up"? By this I mean how do you guys establish and foster relationships with your superiors that have allowed you to either get promoted or receive positive recommendations when moving on to other opportunities? The VP-level guys and up, I'd also love to hear not only what has worked for you and what you're still currently doing in this regard, but also what you guys look for from your junior guys and how they treat you on this subject.
For me personally, I know it is something I can do a better job of. It is also consistently stated as one of, if not the, most effective way to move up within your firm. Looking forward to some insightful posts.
