Why Middle Management is the Hardest Job | Simon Sinek

In this video

The middle management team is stuck between strategic and tactical thinking – they’re the translator between the two. Things break when we don’t train people how to lead OR the senior leadership’s focus isn’t aligned with the people below them.

  1. I was so lucky to receive a special training for that purpose (pharma industry) …and still I broke in the middle. Called burn-out. The training was good (analytically speaking) but lacked the follow-up training for those skills you mention here.
    Today I specialized on that process in order to develop those skills. Everybody has them. Can be difficult to access due to unconscious beliefs & emotions. Today I provide the tools for you to dissolve those inner obstacles so you can unleash your full potential.

  2. So true, breaking down the longterm strategic goals into micro routine and milestones is difficult. Thats why I try to educate myself with exactly these core skills and knowledge, to one day become this layed back perfectly skilled leader people look up to and people like to work for and give 100% for. Enthusiasm needs to be created at work. its not there from nothing.

  3. Thank you for your books and training. I had this experience and did exactly what you mention in the video. Ours is a small company and now rest of the groups want to work with our group/team. Not only that, my team is excited to work not because they have to but because they really want to!
