Course Objectives


Mission and Vision

The significance of middle management's role of supporting the mission and vision of the department can’t be understated. It is critical that each employee be reminded what we get paid to do. When all else fails, personnel should be able to look at the mission and vision and make proper decisions. Additionally, we will be exploring ways to provide a positive work environment.

Walking the Talk

During this period we will be discussing issues of ethical behavior and how courage effects your level of ethics. Regardless of rank or position you must lead by example.

Work Performance Management

Most organizations task various supervisors with completing performance evaluations without providing training. During the time allotted, we will reveal the importance of this function to the mission and vision. Middle Managers must take the performance evaluation process seriously.

Holding Supervisors Accountable for Behavior

What if the person who needs disciplined is a supervisor? During this period we will be discussing ways to hold the supervisor accountable for their behavior. We will discuss a case study outlining how one commander of a department tried to identify causes of the “unmotivated supervisor.”

Risk Management

Anyone can be sued for just about anything, it is important that the organizations protect themselves with sound risk management practices. Taking an affirmative role in training and monitoring high risk critical tasks, is a crucial step in the right direction. During this session, we will be discussing relevant case law to reduce our liability risk.

Pushing the CEO’s Agenda

There are going to be times when being a middle manager is going to be difficult. You may have to follow an unpopular program from the top, not to mention gripes from the workers. We will discuss ways to deal with the “Acute Political Emergency”, while supporting the CEO’s agenda.
