Middle-level managers have a unique position within any organization, as they typically have to manage up as well as down. Therefore, managers need to be aware of how their behavior impacts both those they manage and their higher-ups.
Middle managers are responsible for execution—taking the vision and strategies set by top management and turning them into results by guiding the efforts of others. It is absolutely critical that the practices and cultural impact of managers are aligned with the organization’s visions, values, and strategies.
