Working with your boss (LFUYR -M1 S2L1)
Establishing productive relationships with their managers
One of the challenges managers cite is the need for supervisors to work more independently while still keeping their managers in the loop.

At the same time, they want to work out a form of communication that keeps both of them informed so there will be no surprises.
