The Triton


Stew column is needed reminder


I wanted to thank Alene Keenen for her “Managing Up” article in The Triton this month. [“Anticipate, foster relations, give feedback to ‘manage up’,” page C1, May issue]


I’ve been struggling with my chief stew for a couple of months and, while I already knew most of what you discuss in the article, somewhere over the last few months I had forgotten it all. The article reminded me what my role is as the second and while it will take some adjustments, I know everything you touched on in the article is what I need to get back to doing.
