Ed Session - "Messy in the Middle": Navigating Mid-Level Management

Boston Park Plaza

Speaker: Megan Becker, Virginia Commonwealth University Zach Blackmon, Wake Forest University

To be successful, particularly in the “messy middle”, professionals must be able to manage up, down, and across. There has been much talk on managing up and down, but the importance of managing across is just beginning to be appreciated. As higher ed becomes increasingly collaborative, mid-managers are crucial to their organizations. Join us to learn about (a) “code-switching” and managing across, (b) collaboration and accountability amongst peers, and (c) the role of perspectives in our work.

3:00 - 4:15 p.m.

Ed Session - Coming Soon!

Boston Park Plaza

This session will address how to manage multiple operations effectively and the skill sets you need to be successful. The session will also cover best practices for managing Up, Down and Across Departments. Learn how to manage a wide variety of auxiliary services, whether you are directly responsible for the operations or whether you oversee them. Effectively supervising staff of multiple units has its challenges, but this session will leave you confident and ready to wear many hats!
