Development program for middle management

Today managers are no longer just managers or strong leaders in the service of company objectives. On top of this, they are employees, foreign ministers, crisis managers, change managers, mentors, coaches, cost reducers and much more. This role extension is particularly widespread in middle management. These leaders are role models with a broad impact and must work on their own self-management, in order to be able to effectively lead other leaders. In addition, they need increased awareness about their impact on processes, objectives, values and strategies of their company.
