It has never been easy to be a middle manager, and companies need great middle management now more than ever. While front-line team members are in the trenches with tactical work and senior leaders spend their time casting a vision, mid-level leaders have to do both. Given the impact mid-level leaders can have on an organization’s performance, sustained efforts to develop this group of leaders can be rewarding for everyone. This webinar will bring together a select panel of HR and L&D leaders who will share a few ideas and approaches on selecting the right audience to develop, creating engaging learning journeys and showing value to both the business and learners.

Hear perspectives from a select panel of leaders on how the Learning function plays a crucial role in preparing the next rung of organizational leaders and the roles they play in achieving profitability.
