Leading from the Middle: The High Impact Middle Manager Developing Powerful Strategies for thriving in the Middle - Most organisations struggle with how to develop mid-managers to leadership roles; to become leaders to make decisions with an enterprise perspective, inspire employees to achieve a congruent organisational vision and add value to the bottom line. The High Impact Middle Manager (HIMM) addresses the distinct challenges of managing in the middle of organisations and the models that successful leaders employ in this context.
A middle management competency-based leadership development programme, the HIMM supports managers in mastering an integrated management and leadership toolkit essential for making the critical shift from transactional managers (getting things done: organising and planning) to transformational leaders (influence oriented behaviours: inspiring).

The programme is a self-exploration and self-discovery leadership exploration and development journey that expose participants to learning experiences along a progressive path that supports participants to increase self-knowledge, capabilities and insights. Through experiential learning, participants learn how to use creative thinking, and analytical and strategic skills to drive innovation, performance and effective decision-making. They expand their cross-functional perspective, and learn to perceive their role as building a supportive culture that inspires and empowers everybody to consistently work together to achieve more.

The HIMM premium programme content and our experienced facilitators support middle managers in developing a personal leadership philology, and grow and develop from middle managers to middle leaders. The end-result? Twenty first century confident, now managers, who understand their contributions to the organisation's broader corporate strategy. Participants return to work reenergised with the skill to make informed, effective decisions.
Programme Objective
The HIMM programme will enable participants:
  • Become multi-faceted managers with an enterprise-wide perspective of key business drivers and the inter-connectedness of business activities
  • Gain in-depth knowledge of business functions and build foundational skills to integrate these functions across their organisation
  • Develop a personal leadership philosophy that reflects greater awareness, honest self-knowledge, about one's motives, personality capacities and values
  • Develop a holistic approach to identifying problems, developing solutions, and adapting to change
  • Build strategic skills for effective decision making, strategy development, and implementation
  • Expand capacity to lead cross-functional initiatives and corporate projects in a challenging market and business landscape
As behavioural change takes more time than a good theory and good expectations, at Concinnity, we believe learning is a process, not an event, and the most powerful learning experiences happen in real life rather than in a classroom.

Consequently, the HIMM takes a paced modular programme approach that runs over an extended period and leverages the educational power of multiple learning tools to help embed learning and enhance application in the workplace. The development intervention is a process that is anchored on a paced modular framework. Deploying an integrated blended learning interventions, participants are afforded the time to learn a new skills set, demonstrate new behaviours and embrace a new mind-set.

The HIMM runs over a 3 months period, and comprises of a 7 half-day workshop delivery sessions, supported by a Pre-Programme engagement a month prior to the start of the facilitated workshops, and ends with a Post-Programme Application period for follow-up and support of participants.
