10 Ways to Build a Positive Relationship With Your Manager

Have you ever heard the phrase "learn how to manage your manager"? I was confused the first time I heard this. Manage my manager? Shouldn’t he or she be managing me?  As I worked through my college internships and jobs on campus, I tried to understand this concept.

You learn so much about yourself when you cross the line of comfort and healthy discomfort. (I specifically say “healthy” discomfort because I don’t encourage people to put themselves in mental and physical danger.) In fact, I’ve learned both new skills and more about who I am by venturing outside of my comfort zone.
