Productive working relationships are a crucial, but challenging component in collaborative grant projects. Grant professionals are often tasked with bringing these partners together, which means addressing challenges, including miscommunication, conflicting views, and different personalities, and working styles. Managing up is a skill and tool grant professionals can apply to successfully lead this collaborative work, avoid frustration, and keep moving projects forward to ultimately craft high-quality, competitive proposals.

This course builds upon the Basics of Managing Up by helping participants understand and apply the skills of managing up within a collaborative context. This will include walking participants through common challenges and scenarios and practical tools and strategies to overcome these challenges. Participants will increase their knowledge of:

  • Key skills and behaviors to managing up and how they apply in partnership work.
