Mid-Level Managers oversee and have accountability for achieving results with teams, departments, or other organisational divisions. They work within the larger organisation to ensure employee and process effectiveness by monitoring performance or other key metrics. In large part, they achieve results through others; they set clear expectations, motivate employees to meet them, provide coaching and development, and ensure appropriate staffing and delegation.

Examples of Mid-Level Manager Positions are:
Department Manager, Branch Manager, Division Director, Marketing Director, VP of Operations, Center Manager, Operations Manager, Department Head, Program Manager.


Driving Results – Mid-Level Managers motivate individuals to achieve and exceed goals by establishing accountabilities, clarifying performance expectations, agreeing to high standards and measures, monitoring and reviewing performance, and providing timely and relevant feedback.

Fact-Based Management – They view the organisation as an open system, synthesize information from diverse sources, come to conclusions, and make decisions that are rational and based on sound evidence.

Coaching and Developing Others – They provide quality time and planned commitment to direct reports and provide processes and opportunities for them to understand their strengths and limitations in relation to a range of high-quality and relevant competencies.

Leadership Communication – Mid-Level Managers generate a shared commitment to the organisation, building morale, and encouraging ownership of mission, goals, and values.

Process Management – They take a systematic approach in contributing to making the company’s workflow more effective, efficient, and capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment.

Organisational Savvy – They gather and accurately assess information related to the organisation’s formal and informal communication channels and power relationships.

Delegating – They display strong awareness of when, how, and to whom to delegate and will clearly communicate objectives, tasks, long-term benefits, and expectations for outcomes in order to empower others to take greater responsibility.

Team Building – They enable and encourage group members to work together to complete tasks and accomplish goals that individual members could not accomplish alone.

Decisiveness – Mid-Level Managers tend toward taking calculated risks by making decisions and taking action, even in the absence of all information.
