Being a middle manager can be tough. We can feel like the monkey in the middle . . . learning to lead up-down-sideways.
Where do we start, and how can we effect positive change in our workplace?
We can start with ourselves - building our own emotional intelligence, authentic relationships, and resonant leadership style. When we start here we begin to realize that the energy and purpose we bring to our work extends upwards to our boss, downwards to our employees, and sideways to our peers.
We are all people, and one thing we share in common at work is the vision and purpose that bring us together.
- A vision that we can all believe in and stand up for. One that energizes us to come together each day.
- Individual and team purpose that connects us to our vision and implements the part we play in it.
The communication exercises that created vision and purpose are often completed, put on the wall, and forgotten about. When was the last time you brought these topics up at work as part of a conversation - a real conversation with your boss, an employee, or a peer?
Be daring and talk about your work in a different way!
