Middle management is one of the most common places someone in a “traditional” leadership role will be. As a middle manager, you are in a demanding role where you must navigate the complexities of combining the expectations and directives of those above you with the needs and concerns of those below you while also working across the chain with individuals leading other teams. The decisions you make will have real consequences for your organization and the lives of those you are leading, but you’re also in a unique position that gives you significant influence over the organization’s culture and direction.
