Good questions to ask in one up meetings (or with your boss’s boss)?

“What is your vision for our team?”
“What are the top priorities for our long term success?”
“What are the must win battles?”
“What advice do you have for someone in my position who’s looking to continuously grow here for a long time?”
“What was your start here and what was something you wish someone told you then?”
“Which business partnership do you think is our most vital? Which do you think needs the most work?”
Etc. Show through questions that you have long term goals, a strong business acumen, and willingness to grow/learn.

Not sure what you mean by one up meetings but this is what I would keep in my pocket for talking to my senior superiors.


Ah okay! I would steer the conversation to show off your willingness to be a team player, learn more, demonstrate strong business acumen, and BUILD YOUR BRAND! Building a reputation and brand with your most important stakeholders is paramount.
