Part 2: "How does that differ from the rank-and-file mid-level manager?"
> Great question. I will try to say this as nicely as I can.
In my view the biggest communication problem that a lot of upper management people have is a weakness in basic social skills.
Maybe they are so far removed from trying to make a good impression on everyone they meet that they get sloppy or out of practice with basic manners and likability. I’m not saying they’re bad people. It makes sense how that could happen.
The middle management answer is easy. It’s a lack of being clear - causing way too many misunderstandings and inefficiencies.
I hope that helped
