Spotlight: Leading from the Middle

Instructor: Diana Bloom, Accountability Consultant

Middle management can be a funny place. Senior enough to make big decisions and lead teams, but not the power to make organizational change. In this session, Diana Bloom will address the challenges of “Leading From the Middle” and offer ideas and tools for middle managers to succeed.

We will explore what “managing up” means and doesn’t, why managing up matters, and guidelines for managing up. Come to discuss strategies on how to proactively build productive relationships with supervisors and colleagues, in order to obtain the best possible results for your manager, their boss, and your organization.

Learning Outcomes:

  • What managing up means and does not mean
  • Why managing up matters

  • Guidelines and strategies for a variety of management styles
