Develop the Leadership Skills of Your Middle Managers

Help managers successfully navigate the squeeze between hands-on management and leadership and put the organization’s strategy into action.

Onsite Workshop

Without effective development, middle managers face:

  • The struggle of alternating between leading people and executing on behalf of senior leaders.
  • A resistance to innovation and change in favor of the safety of accepted cultural norms.
  • Higher levels of stress, anxiety, and depression compared to their front line and senior manager counterparts.

Properly developed middle managers contribute to:

  • Better manager relationships that are crucial to positive employee engagement and job satisfaction.
  • Performance measures such as productivity, profit, and output growth.
  • Enhanced ability to coach, build trust, and inspire employees.
