Your talent management plan needs a solid core: strong mid-level leaders. As the conduit between the executive level and the front line, mid-level leaders turn senior leaders’ vision for the organization into reality. They can be charged with running an entire business, or successfully introducing and managing change. Having great leaders at this level is also vital to building a healthy leadership pipeline for the future of your business.
DDI knows the unique challenges—and infinite opportunities—that organizations must consider when hiring, developing and promoting these leaders.
