Anne Landreat's curator insight, October 28, 5:00 AM

One of the main keys to change is middle management. Yes. Avoiding transformation processes turning into dull meetings, PowerPoint presentations and ticking the boxes exercise is another. And this may be done only by the reconquest of the human part of the entire organization, middle managers included. Because the key factor for change, deep change, is empathy. The example of nurse Michelle delaCalle shows this obviously. Put yourself in the shoes of your users, clients, subordinates, colleagues from other divisions, and even managers and see how you feel. Like it ? No ? Then change the way you act.

 

David Hain's curator insight, October 28, 5:27 AM

"We think of mid-level managers as managing incremental change — but many are change leaders in the making. When they align their personal goals and strengths with the organization’s goals, they become extraordinary leaders." ` Behnam Tabrizi
