The Middle Leader Manifesto

We asked one question to 160 Aspiring, Middle and Senior Leaders in our Leading from the Middle programme: what does it take to grow into an excellent middle leader?

Know what you want.

Simple ideas are ambitious ideas.

It’s about them, not about you.

Find your Brains Trust.

Make your ideas portable.

Leaders create leaders.

Plan serendipity.

20% done is an invitation to feedback. 90% done is an invitation to ship.

Iterate. Iterate. Iterate. Then iterate again.

Revisit your scrapheap.

Communicate clearly, differently, often.

Time is your most valuable resource — start using it that way.

Actually do it.
