Navigating Middle Management

Being a woman in middle management can feel like navigating stormy seas.

  • Your boss micromanages you.
  • Your male peers earn more and get promoted more often.
  • You’re treated like a child versus the experienced professional you are.

You’re frustrated and exhausted from trying so hard. You’re sick of being so stressed and worn out. You dread going to work some days, except for the fact you love your customers and your team. After work, you feel like crying. You go home feeling frazzled and defeated.

Alarm bells are sounding. You may even be experiencing stress related physical issues like headaches or stomach distress.

Life shouldn’t be so hard. There has to be another way.

You’ve tried being more assertive, only to get called names behind your back. You’ve tried working longer hours, only to come home complaining and exhausted. You don’t need platitudes like “It’s a Man’s World,” “Put Your Big Girl Panties On,” “Suck it up,” or “That’s just the way it is.”

You need help to change this pattern. You want the respect, recognition, and rewards you deserve for the amount of experience, talent, and the time you put into your job. You don’t want to quit, you want to stay put and learn how to function in your job and workplace culture – without losing your soul.
