Leading From The Middle Program Can Help You Become More Effective, Productive And Influential

The Leading Institute

Any mid-level planning, community development or public service professional can benefit from Leading from the Middle. Participants learn practical, ethical ways to build influence, communicate strategically, manage conflict, maximize limited resources, build successful teams, and work effectively in diverse and dynamic environments. Whether you want to be more a more effective team leader or more persuasive with clients and community members, Leading from the Middle can help.

The program combines six training workshops, peer coaching and one-to-one executive coaching. Participants get training in key leadership and management topics, then work on a leadership project under the guidance of a senior level professional. Unlike other programs that try to cram an enormous amount of information in a few days, Leading from the Middle gives participants the time to learn and share their insights with supportive colleagues.

The program is convenient for working professionals. Leading from the Middle Fellows participate in six workshops (held on Fridays or Saturdays depending on the class) and work with their coach at their convenience. There are three upcoming programs: the New Jersey class (held at Rutgers University in New Brunswick) runs from October 2007 to June 2008. The Washington D.C. class runs from October 2007 to April 2008. The New York class runs from March to December 2008.

Program fees are on a sliding scale of $250 to $1,250. Scholarships are available. The sooner you apply, the more scholarship you can receive.

Workshops are interactive, with discussions and exercises that give Fellows tools and knowledge they can apply on the job. Leading from the Middle Fellows learn more than just leadership. Because our students are diverse, they learn a lot from one another about planning, community development and public policy.

Leading from the Middle is produced by The Leading Institute, in affiliation with the Professional Development Institute of Rutgers University's Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy; Manna Inc.; The Democracy Collaborative at the University of Maryland; the Center for Excellence in Public Leadership at George Washington University; and the American Planning Association's New Jersey and New York Metro chapters.
