Abstract: Being a leader in the middle is tough. You often find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to please your boss and make your direct reports happy. You have to translate what your senior leader wants into action, you have to work with other departments who may or may not like you, and people can go above your head because the buck doesn’t stop with you. It’s no wonder that middle-level leaders are one of the most stressed of all worker groups. In this highly engaging and relevant session, you’ll learn how to help lift your leader’s load, to get noticed for the great work you are doing, and what you can do to lead and empower your direct reports. Surely, you’ve got a difficult job, but with the right tools and strategies, you can learn how to succeed as a middle-level leader, leaving your working day satisfied that you are making a difference in your role and on the communities that you serve.
