Sometimes, being a middle manager can be challenging.
But with key skills and high confidence in our abilities, it can be manageable AND enjoyable to undertake this key position in an organization.
In PLC’s succession work, it has become very clear that there is a need for training at the middle management level to help managers both step into their leadership potential and develop the skills needed to manage people and resources effectively. Communication, supervision, financial management and a better understanding of leadership were all key areas that EDs and managers identified as crucial to helping middle managers not only survive but thrive in their roles. This is why we created the ‘Leading From The Middle’ program. We enable middle managers to connect and learn together to grow their network, their skills and their confidence.
There is no financial cost but participants must commit to the full program as we have found that full attendance gives the most benefit. This program is for Peel Region leaders only.
Sessions are held one full day per week over the course of five weeks, and may include:
THE ART OF LEADERSHIP
What kind of leader do you aspire to be? What is the difference between managing and leading? This workshop is a dialogue on leadership that balances practice and theory, using storytelling, promising practices, and reflection on our own experiences.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ)
Learn about emotional intelligence and its importance to leadership and healthy, flourishing organizational cultures. Define what emotional intelligence is and is not. Practice techniques that will help participants on the journey of turning behaviours into habits. Using presentation, videos, and hand-on activities, this highly interactive workshop is both engaging and practical.
Effective communication is a key skill for successful leaders. In this workshop, we explore practical models and approaches that will help you overcome barriers to communication, and prepare you to have and facilitate productive conversations based on trust and collaboration.
MASTERING FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
If you want to become a financial management rock star, then this is the workshop for you! Designed for program and project managers, this workshop will help you move from work planning to budgeting and from financial tracking to reporting.

This session will be an opportunity for participants to bring together their learning and set action goals for the future.
