Behaviors to Master When Dealing with Your Leaders (Neal Whitten, PMP)


Your leaders want you to know—need you to know—the behaviors they consistently expect from you. Just because you have a leadership role doesn't mean you are living up to their expectations. Not only will Neal identify what your boss expects from you, he will articulate what you expect from those under your direction.

The 18 behaviors revealed include: Don't dump and run, make it brief, offer professional criticism, bring solutions with problems, wear one face, and many more.

Learn how you can enhance your image, effectiveness, and career while making your leaders look good—which makes you look good. Talk about a win-win!
