What is life like in the middle? In our personal and professional lives, we are often in systems or situations where we don’t have positional authority. Leading in such situations requires real-time reflecting and adapting. This session will provide tools and ideas for program leaders who are required to manage up, down and out every day. Digging into professional dilemmas with the help of your peers, we’ll talk about the experience of middleness, the range of roles you are called on to hold and moves to help you navigate challenges. Bring your experiences, your successes, your struggles and your sense of humor!
