Making More Impact as a Middle Manager

If you’re looking for ways to up your game as a middle manager, this course can help. In this audio-only course from How to Be Awesome at Your Job, Scott Mautz presents a series of best practices for leading up, down, and across your organization. Scott explains that, with so many roles, middle managers have to be good at making multiple mental transitions. He points out that the most successful middle managers see the hats they wear as integrated into one position they’re uniquely suited to handle. Scott also poses this question: are you assisting success or just avoiding failure? He advocates dividing your time 50/50. No more than 50% of your time should go to pragmatism or firefighting. The rest of your time should go toward pursuing exciting possibilities and opportunities. Scott walks you through the good-to-great grid that you can use when dealing with your boss, then concludes with his rules for giving excellent feedback and building influence with your peers.
