How can you lead when you’re in the middle of a group or organization and don’t have positional authority? Leading in ambiguous, “middle” situations requires real-time reflecting and adapting. This session will provide tools and ideas for mid-level leaders who are required to manage up, down and out every day. What is life like in the middle? Digging into professional dilemmas with the help of your peers, we’ll talk about the experience of middleness, the range of roles you are called on to hold, and practices to help you navigate challenges. Bring your experiences, your successes, your struggles, and your sense of humor!
