Developing the power of the middle in organisations
Organisations depend hugely on the work and effectiveness of middle tier managers to execute strategy and to lead teams effectively.
But middle managers can often find themselves torn between serving the senior team (or their boss) and meeting the needs of their direct reports.
And middle managers find it tough to integrate as a team, working together across silos in service to the wider organisations strategy and goals.
We need to find ways of developing middle managers to move and take leadership action. To take responsibility.
Working to liberate the brilliance of our middle managers is a high leverage activity that can unlock new cultural norms and drive organisational performance.
