Quick! Spot the most likely “next great leader!” Thought so…you can’t. Better to train them all.

Our work training middle managers to be great leaders, even transformational leaders, within their organizations is catching on as a trend in human development.

Here is a fresh bit of proof, in the form of an article on Chief Learning Officer’s online magazine:

How to Keep Mid-Managers on Track

Here is the author’s thesis, which hews pretty closely to our mindset about the full potential of middle managers to be leaders, if given the proper support and direction:

“If midlevel leaders are failing, the skills and predispositions that made them good individual contributors and first-level leaders may be undermining their ability to climb the corporate ladder and eventually become senior leaders.

The implications for performance, leadership development and succession are significant, and there is a bit of nature vs. nurture at play. The good news is in many cases, midlevel leaders can be coached to become effective and inspirational.”

One quibble: We believe, based on our own quarter-century of work finding leaders hidden in plain sight within organizations, that anyone can lead if given the right tools and guidance. So when the authors write that “in many cases” middle managers can become good leaders, they understate the potential payoff that comes from investing in formal, organized, measured leadership training for middle managers.

  • All middle managers can get better at leading others, and contributing more towards raising employee productivity.
  • Some can get a lot better, and really become transformational leaders, and big contributors to achieving the organizational mission.

How may we help team CTAIf you don’t give every middle manager the chance to excel with active support, you may miss some really shiny diamonds in the rough!

While we are nitpicking the author’s excellent work, let’s hammer on another comment that we find a bit off-target:

“Leaders cannot change their ability, personality and derailment tendencies, but they can manage them.”

Whoa! If a leader cannot improve their ability, how can they convert themselves into a transformational leader? We agree that personality does not, and should not, change (you must be true to yourself in all events!) But, ‘derailment’ tendencies are exactly what get eliminated when you replace bad leadership habits with new, constructive, forward-thinking, action-oriented habits.

We find that the simple act of raising awareness about how your own behavior impacts the passion and productivity of others, positively and negatively, takes every manager a great deal down the road towards fixing those ‘derailment tendencies.’ The hard part, of course, is habitualizing the new leadership mindset so that “enrailment tendencies” become second nature!

Here is where the article takes us well down the road towards successfully implementing a program of middle management training.

FOUR STEPS TO BOOST MIDLEVEL LEADERS’ EFFECTIVENESS (paraphrased from authors Joy Hazucha and Cori Hill)

1. Gain insight into the life of your middle managers. Run Job DNA assessments to frame what the position is supposed to accomplish, according to those who rely on it. (“What if this job could talk?”) Assess your middle managers’ behaviors and motivations and see where the gaps are.

2. Teach the managers the basic interpersonal skills of leadership. What factors influence a leader’s ability to grow into the leadership role they occupy (or wish to obtain). Create a program mix that includes formal training, coaching, mentoring and experiential exercises. Task each manager’s boss to work with each manager to customize his or her program.

3. Create opportunities to prepare leaders for future roles (up or sideways, as they see fit). Give them access to senior managers through task forces and other types of “out of the silo” activities. Engage them in cross-functional teams that tackle real issues that the organization is facing.

4. Expand your definition of onboarding to include the first year of any new job. Once every job has shared its DNA, programs to ramp new occupants up quickly can be created and attached to the job (and customized for each person actually in the job by their boss.) Progress is then more easily measured, and gaps spotted and bridged more quickly.

Leaders are rarely born. They are largely made, and if the organization wants to build leaders that contribute at a high level within its culture, constant attention must be paid to the leadership development process, job by job, person by person, starting with the first day each of your new leaders step off the line and into a supervisory role.
