Why I do this…

Being a “Middle” Manager is one of the toughest corporate jobs on the planet. You must learn how to survive the chaos of stack rankings, layoffs, promotion quotas- the list goes on and on. The worst part if you are on the hook for your team’s performance even though you don’t control all the variables. Oh and I forgot to mention you are basically going to get no support from anyone else in your organziation. The only help will be from other middle managers. Thats why I am here. I want to help you figure out how to manage real people in real situations and try to make your day just a little bit easier to handle.
