ABSTRACT
This paper describes a five factor framework for understanding the work of middle managers based on who they are interacting with, and the purpose of the interaction. Middle managers work with top managers, peers, and employees to either (1) share information and communicate or (2) influence other's perceptions and actions. We found this leadership framework an invaluable tool for helping our coaching clients see how their work fits into a web of relationships and how those relationships can be strengthened to enhance personal and organizational effectiveness.
