Leading Leaders Program

Middle-level leaders play a critical role in aligning the organization, enabling high-performance, and sustaining results. They are the link between the organization’s strategy and the achievement of the strategy. It is the role of the middle-level leader to build the structure needed to implement the organization’s strategy and to lead the leaders in implementing the strategy. The lack of understanding of the role of the middle-level leader often results in many of them focusing on the wrong thing; on micro managing their departments or even doing the work of their direct reports. 


To develop the mindset and skills middle-level leaders need to lead leaders and fulfill their role in aligning the organization, managing performance systems, and improving results.
