Good Day, everyone!
I work in a 24/7, 365 day hospitality environment as a middle manager. It has been noticed both by me, and by my direct supervisor that I am not managing up well. My schedule is Friday, Saturday, Sunday, from 1pm onwards, and Monday and Tuesday, overnights from 10pm to 7am. The upper level of managment starts their work days at 8am, and typically leaves by 7pm. Our paths cross only when they see me on their way in, and on Fridays, for half an hour, during an ops meeting, in which I rarely participate.
I have made the commitment to come to work "just because" on Thursdays, once a month, so my peers and (more importantly) the supervisors on the next level see me, but I feel that is not enough. What advice can you offer me in managing up, getting my name "out there" and building a positive reputation and relationships.
