Perceptions of organizational leadership have changed and the disparity between middle managers and senior organizational leaders has never been greater. Senior leaders are in positions of influence. They have the power to inspire and motivate their workforce, positively affect change, and enhance overall organizational performance. Nowhere within organizations is this ability more critical than at the middle management level. Our research suggests that not only do organizations need to be focused on leadership, but senior leaders need to be cognizant of how they relate and ultimately impact their middle managers.
