If you have a boss (and, at some level, who doesn’t?), you need to read this post from Working Smart. This is really great advice about how to sell your boss on your idea. Mike has some tips about how top management differs from middle management when it comes to having their needs met, and he gives us a peek behind the veil when he reveals his Recommendation Briefing Form. This is similar advice to my previous series of post on The Secret Art of Managing Your Boss, but Mike’s post is much more focused and full of details. Great stuff, go read!
