<p><b>Praise for LEADING FROM THE MIDDLE</b></p> <p>“Too many leadership books are great on theory, light on applicability. Mautz nails the unmet need of helping middle managers with insightful, specific advice.”<br /><b> —Daniel H. Pink,</b> <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>WHEN, DRIVE</i>, and <i>To Sell is Human</i></p> <p>“The ultimate guide for middle managers to create the most value for their companies and increase engagement and productivity from their teams. A must-read!”<br /><b> —Marshall Goldsmith,</b> two-time #1 Leadership Thinker in the world and the <i>New York Times</i> #1 bestselling author of <i>Triggers, Mojo</i>, and <i>What Got You Here Won’t Get You There</i></p> <p>“Influencing others is hard.

This is that book.”<br /><b> —Paul Smith,</b> bestselling author of <i>The 10 Stories Great Leaders Tell</i></p> <p>“Scott Mautz’s wonderfully written book embraces the messiness of leading from the middle, offering a powerful model for anyone who has a boss and is a boss.
