You can manage up by decoding what your boss is thinking and feeling, and then connecting with them on a more meaningful level.

Great leadership boils down to managing one key startup asset: your people.
You can’t expect to hire engaged startup employees off the bat -- your job is to manage them so they’re inspired to work harder, stay loyal and meet company goals. But hiring, firing and managing take practice; few of us are born managers. Plus, every decision you make (good or bad) helps set the tone for your company culture. That's a lot of responsibility. Are you up to the task?
In the long run, you’re only making it easier for yourself and your team.
If you know how to manage your team correctly, there should be little they can’t do.
You can (and should) never stop learning.
