I believe that if you are a middle manager, then you are in the best position to make a significant contribution and difference where you work— perhaps a better chance than those who have bigger titles and paychecks! The job is firmly in the thick of things and is, at its core, the only hope the organization has for getting a lot done. Middle managers are the blasters of dysfunction and they create the vibe of the culture. The new middle management acumen reflects the promise, opportunity, and challenges inherent in being a middle manager. I hope this Infoline will help you enjoy your work and improve the results you get from the people and processes you oversee.
