The Five Habits of High Performing Middle Managers

Too many people are encouraged into middle management without the right preparation.

Too many leave middle management because they aren't supported, developed or have clear direction.

Too many stay in middle management because they feel stuck, not getting a chance to step up.

Whether middle managers are unprepared, unsupported or stuck, they often unjustly get a bad rap. And I should know, I've been one, and I've also sate at every level of an organisation: from being at the front line to being the CEO, so I've seen middle managers from each vantage point.

And there's no other role in an organisation that is as perfectly positioned to lead up, down and across.

In this opening keynote, you'll explore how finding, harnessing and leveraging five core habits is the foundation of showing up, speaking up and standing out - being your best self.

Confidence is integral for success and I'll show how clear understanding of your value, and how being perfectly positioned, helps boost your confidence, amplifies your leadership and ensures greater employee engagement.

The Age Smart & Age Ready Manager

An unprecedented generational change is happening at both ends of the work spectrum today. Employees are living longer but the power is moving younger. Plain intelligence boasts three separate components: Digital intelligence, Emotional intelligence and Social intelligence.

Each generation is entering their careers with different paradigms and unique lenses. Take factors such as attitude towards authority, communication style, motivating skill, feedback loop and evaluation, dealing with change...there is a new diversity at play.

Although multi-generational teams are desirable for innovation and creativity, it is the middle ground that will decide whether this new diversity will be a help or a headache. And since, there is no microwave in the market for leadership skills yet, it is the middle management that will have to learn to build trust and respect between generations.

In an era of youth cult, ageist assumptions and our longevity future, the middle manager will have to be both age ready and age smart!

In this session middle managers will:

  • Understand the new diversity and reasons why
  • Appreciate what it takes to connect the generations
  • Learn the 8 benefits of age diversity in the workplace
  • Examine how to integrate generational differences at work
  • Dive into the art of reverse mentoring
  • Begin to think mentor, not just manager

TeamSynchronicity™: Creating Quantum Results

We are living in a world of uncertainty and ambiguity which demands a change in the rules that teams live by. To navigate the new world of teams we must release the grip of Newtonian linear logic and embrace the Quantum mindset which recognises that human beings are at our core, connected energy. It is a paradigm shift that will unleash our creativity, curiosity, and adaptability, attract synchronicity and create quantum results.

To do this middle managers need to know how to create TeamSynchronicity™.

THE 8 SECRETS OF TeamSynchronicity™

1. MISSION OWNERSHIP: each member is committed to a meaningful team mission.

2. VALUES AND ALIGNED BEHAVIOUR: there is an agreed upon set of values and aligned behaviours to achieve the team mission.

3. HEART/BRAIN COHERENCE: brain and heart work together, and there is mental and emotional coherence throughout the team.

4. SKILL SUFFICIENCY: the team has both the skills and styles needed to achieve results.

5. AUTHENTIC SELF: each member understands and contributes their authentic self.

6. TRUST AND SAFETY: there is a trusting climate where all members are valued, can be depended on to keep their promises; and to speak up on difficult issues.

7. RESULTS FOCUS: there is a constant focus on achieving mission results.

8. QUANTUM MINDSET: members know how to navigate from a Newtonian to a Quantum mindset and how to look out for synchronicity.

In this cutting edge session Dr Philip Merry will introduce you to ideas that will transform your won team management and leadership as well as your team.
