In this chapter I want to look at advising upwards through a completely different lens. I want to change the whole point of view about what is going on during the advising upwards process and present what I consider to be the beginnings of a Darwinian explanation for what goes on. More particularly I want to explore an evolutionary basis for the advising behaviours and tools managers use. Not only do evolutionary principles expose the biological foundations of our behaviours, they show us how we can use this information in constructive behaviour-changing ways.
