First off I love this podcast.

I am the classic example of how Mark and Mike talk about the "best welder being promoted to line supervisor" but not being a manager type. However after listening to the manager tools podcasts I have gone from leading a struggling area to having a very effective team - so much so my Managing Director asked me to fill in for him for a few days while he was away (bypassing Managers above me)

I feel my communication with my team and to my upper management is currently good. What I still struggle with is getting my point across to Managers from other departments both at my level and above when they have different objectives. I sometimes struggle to get my point of view across effectively.

What I need is advice on how to communicate when my objectives are different from other managers, how to formulate my communication to get my point of view across.

Any advice.

any of you guys go golfing? I've been thinking about doing just that... I heard it actually improves your PERSONALITY! Is this true?
