About the book

Recent research shows that the number of people in senior specialist and middle management positions is growing. As organizations continue to flatten, the middle becomes the place where many will spend the majority of their careers. The Outstanding Middle Manager is the new guide to dealing with those pressures specific to the role and maximizing the opportunities to forge a fulfilling and balanced career in the middle. Drawing on the latest research into workplace trends, strategic management and work-life balance, Tinline and Cooper focus on middle management as an opportunity level.

Readers can discover: strategies for managing upwards as well as downwards, how to deal effectively with generational differences and an evolving workplace, influencing, empowerment and team-building skills, and stress- and life-management strategies that bring clarity and purpose. With a focus on lateral development and progression as a career choice, The Outstanding Middle Manager empowers readers to take control of their mid-level career to become more fulfilled, more resilient and more satisfied.
