Often times there is a lack of certainty around decision making and the direction of an organisation.

For the middle manager there is no real method of being able to accept change upwards.

So what do you do? Change yourself.

  • Attitude - your attitude determines your altitude.
  • Goals - define who you want to be, and where you want to go.
  • Direction - think for yourself, understand the bigger organisation and consider where you fit in and if you can make incremental changes at your level.
  • Communication - be honest and open. Let those above you know that you would like more openness and a knowledge of where things are going.
  • Patience - don't be in a rush. Good things take time.

There are no silver bullet remedies for work situations that you have no control over. But you can control your attitude and your responses!
