Who It’s For

Managers that need to effectively lead and influence up, down, and across in order to achieve sustainable results and make the next leap in their leadership journey

Why this Course

“Leading up” is the process of leading your organization from the middle. It requires the mindset of a CEO with the authority of a middle manager. Leading up and from the middle requires two things: influence and action. Influence is necessary to open doors so you can be heard. Action is necessary to implement your plan. Those who succeed at leading from the middle are artful and adept managers. They utilize their management skills to establish goals, plan projects, organize people and execute projects on time and on budget.

This course presents ways that managers can create and leverage their influence to build coalitions in order to effect positive change and achieve organizational goals. Managers who lead up and across are those who can influence across boundaries because they have the trust and respect of senior leaders and peers.

“Influencing from the Middle” is essential to managers who want to achieve sustainable results that complement the mission of their organization.
