In this episode, I react to a Twitter thread that Wes Kao wrote about managing up. Wes is the co-founder of Maven and someone I consider a mentor, even though I have never met her. This topic about managing up is a personal weakness of mine, which is why it caught my eye.
If it’s not a weakness, I do tend to avoid this topic, or otherwise get uncomfortable when I am faced with the decision to improve how I manage up. This is why I am choosing to face up to it. Rebel intrapreneurs manage up, and I need to learn how to do it better.
Thank goodness for Wes Kao’s solid advice.

Today’s episode is brought to you by Figma. Two important tools of the Rebel Intrapreneur are the business model canvas and the value proposition canvas. Figma has templates for both. I used the value proposition canvas template to design the listener profile and value map for this show. You can do it, too. Try Figma for free, and get your innovation projects off the ground fast.
