Middle managers make up the majority of managers in the world. New research suggests that the middle manager is the most important group in the organization and if not adequately engaged or developed, team member growth, productivity, and the purpose of the organization will not be realized. This Middle Managers Development Guide is therefore designed to give Leaders a greater understanding of how middle managers should interact across all functional areas of business.
These include how they influence change with team members and engage in fiscal prudence. It also includes how they build a high-performance organization and support top management while seeing to the needs of staff/workers. The effective interface with other departments, and managing and planning change with limited resources will also be discussed. Finally, the Guide will delineate the role of the middle manager in transformation, people development, and communicating up and down the ladder whilst balancing the needs of the employees, business, and shareholders.
