We’ve all heard of the phrase “managing up,” but what does it mean to give feedback to your boss – and how can you do it the right way without getting fired? Research shows that many people leave organizations due to bad management, so why not turn that around and empower employees to give managers a piece of their mind?

Joining me to tackle this tough and touchy topic today is Anita Bowness, Global Practice Leader of Halogen Software
