Publisher's Summary

The definitive playbook for driving impact as a middle manager

Leading from the Middle delivers an insightful and practical guide for the backbone of an organization: those who have a boss and are a boss and must lead from the messy middle. Accomplished author and former P&G executive Scott Mautz walks listeners through the unique challenges facing these managers, and the mindset and skill set necessary for managing up and down and influencing what happens across the organization. 

You'll learn the winning mindset of the best middle managers, how to develop the most important skills necessary for managing from the middle, how to create your personal Middle Action Plan (MAP), and effectively influence: 

  • Up the chain of command, to your boss and those above them
  • Down, to your direct reports and teams who report to you
  • Laterally, to peers and teams you have no formal authority over

Anyone in an organization who reports to someone and has someone reporting to them must lead from the middle. They are the most important group in an organization and have a unique opportunity to drive impact. Leading from the Middle explains how.

This book Resonates

I work in a fast pace industry of solving complex waste problems. As a Project Manager (middle management) expectations are just that expected. This book puts it all in perspective "there is a cost to knowing". It layed out that there are many more people in the exact position, and gives new perspective or reason to why I am suited to lead up, down, and across. If you feel your running in place with your current leadership role, give this book a go. It will recharge you.
