Research, anecdotal evidence and leadership experience have pointed to a critical point of failure in strategy execution – the middle management. While lofty strategies are crafted by senior leaders in consultation with expensive consultants armed with high powered big data analytics, many companies have realised that strategies often fail because the message is not effectively carried through. Actions are often misaligned and misdirected at the operations level. This is due to failure at the middle management level.

With increasing realisation of the importance of middle managers' role in strategy execution and employee engagement, there is a growing need to strengthen this area to ensure the sustainability of the business. On the other hand, middle managers are increasingly feeling like a sandwiched class. Higher expectations from the top, driven by dynamic and challenging business environments, such as managing a diverse group of employees comprising the millennial, Gen Y, Gen X, and the Baby Boomers.

This 2-days workshop is specifically designed for middle managers to understand the critical nature of their role and equip them with the right skill sets and mindset to perform effectively.
