It seems in today’s business climate ‘agility’ is not just a buzzword, it’s more of a survival kit, there’s an element that many organisations seem to overlook. It’s not nestled in the high echelons of the C-Suite nor is it hiding under the piles of paperwork on your desk. No, I’m talking about ‘leading from the middle.’
Imagine your organisation as a big ship. At the helm, the senior leaders and C-Suite executives gaze towards the horizon, plotting the course. Below deck, the crew (your day-to-day team) are hard at work, ensuring the ship sails smoothly. But who’s the vital link between the chartroom and the engine room? It’s the middle leaders, the unsung heroes, steering the ship through tumultuous seas and ensuring every member of the crew is in sync.
If you think your company can remain nimble and adapt to rapid changes with just top-down leadership, you’re as likely to succeed as a chocolate teapot. Senior leaders and C-Suites, hear me out. You’ve got grand ideas, big plans, and a vision that could rival the best of Renaissance painters. But who is going to translate these Da Vinci-esque dreams into reality? Who’s going to ensure that your ‘big ideas’ don’t end up as just another unread email in your employees’ inboxes? Your middle leaders.
And to the middle leaders, the bridge between aspirations and reality, you’re not just managing a team. You’re leading a mini-revolution every day. You’re the ones ensuring that the ‘big ideas’ aren’t just picked up but are owned, championed, and brought to life. You’re the ones who understand that managing a team isn’t just about keeping the ship afloat but about sailing it with gusto towards uncharted territories.
But here’s the rub. Leading from the middle is no walk in the park. It’s more like a tightrope walk where you’re balancing the strategic vision of the senior leadership with the practical realities of your team. You need skills as diverse as a Swiss Army Knife and the agility of a cat.
