Servant Leading from the Middle

March 29, 2018

Our episode today is about leading from the middle.  Who is that guy or gal in the middle? He or she walks a balance beam between the senior leader and the individual contributor. In many companies he performs tasks, manages daily activities, and leads all at the same time. Often times, they are the communicator of good and bad news.  We will chat today about the nature of leading from the middle as a servant leader, how you can effect change wherever you are in the organization, and offer some tips on how to elevate your leadership as you serve from the middle.  Enjoy!
