Managing up is a vital career skill, says Stacey Hawley, founder of Credo, a compensation and talent management firm. She offers three ways to do it right.

1.  Write everything down. When you document what people say to you and how you respond, you’re ready for any questions or details that might come your way. It makes you indispensable.

2.  ‘Reply all’ on emails. Keeping your team in the loop ensures everyone’s on the same page for a project or new procedure.

3.  Ask for others’ input. Ask people how they think a process is going or what you could be doing better. This can be hard, but being open to feedback can help you de­­liver better results next time.
