Ask a Manager

Alison Green

Overview

In a corporate environment, the ways in which you communicate with your peers is just as important as your performance. However, communication is a complex skill; it takes a different set of tools to deal with a micromanaging boss, an uncommunicative colleague, or an unresponsive client.

Thanks to her vast experience with diverse roles, work-advice columnist Alison Green can help you with solving workplace management issues that concern your boss, colleagues, and subordinates. Green has two famous books on her name, Managing to Change the World and Ask a Manager. Her blog, Ask a Manager, has been featured by the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

In Ask a Manager, Green shows the most effective ways to handle a difficult situation at your workplace. She encourages both employers and employees to confront problems with confidence, honesty, and empathy.

"Speaking up doesn't have to mean alienating people or causing tension in your relationships; you can be direct without being rude, and you can be assertive without being disagreeable."
