Moving into a first-time management role can be lonely.
Not only does the new manager suffer, but their team are also impacted by their manager’s inexperience.
According to Research by Gallup/Bain & Company engaged staff are 44% more productive than staff who are merely satisfied.
And inspired staff are 125% more productive than staff who are merely ‘satisfied’
So if your manager isn’t managing effectively this can have a massive impact on productivity, staff turnover and ultimately your bottom line.
It’s all too easy to leave newly promoted managers to muddle along and learn on the job.
But, unless they get the chance to develop their management skills, to be given the resources and the opportunity to build their confidence, you are leaving their effectiveness as a manager to chance.
