Rachel Gillett - Head of Leadership

“When we consider how much we rely on middle managers, supporting their development is vital for success. Middle managers need the tools to navigate the responsibilities of leadership whilst still needing to deliver results to senior leadership themselves.”

Middle managers play a vital role in businesses.

They are the people we call upon to translate company messaging to make impact at departmental levels. They are the first line of call for support and motivation for team members. It’s middle managers who can turn goals from concepts to reality.

Our course focuses on the demands we place on middle managers, then gives them practical tools to succeed. Through understanding the role of storytelling and translation, they can understand how to align their teams to their company’s mission.

Knowing how to use coaching skills can empower team members whilst simultaneously lessening the load on the middle manager’s own shoulders.

Understanding the steps needed to move operations forward can ensure individuals feel more in control and strategic – a positive step for those looking to prepare themselves for the next step of senior leadership.
