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.

Title should instead be "Acronym Performer"
Book has some good notes and details, however, I find it ironic the author is trying to show you ways to see all perspectives and how to influences those all around you, but they do it in a way the reinforces some of the corporate jargon that does NOT contribute to success in any environment I've observed. The book's author is obsessed with acronyms and uses it them all over the place, nearly impossible to keep up with and just funny how they are meant to be used as short hand ways to remember stuff but they use SO MANY it loses all merit and reasoning behind acronyms.

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.
