Middle managers

Becoming a middle manager is the crossover point for many in their leadership journey, where the focus turns to managing other managers.

At this point, learning to delegate effectively, role modelling leadership behaviours and developing the leadership capabilities of your team become increasingly important.

Hear from our experts

"One of my favourite parts of coaching those who are in middle management roles, or are moving up to this level, is helping unpack the complexity of the situation.

Whilst many of my participants are still quite operational in their roles, being responsible for multiple teams of people means that inability to delegate tasks effectively can lead to increased stress and burnout.

This can be a double edged sword though, as middle managers need to be sure their direct reports are both competent and confident enough to handle the tasks being delegated, which means a sharp focus on the development of their teams. 

As if often the case, every individual and situation is unique, so its about breaking down the issues into manageable pieces and guiding people along the path to addressing the biggest issues first."
