How to make sure your first-time manager succeeds
Have you ever promoted a high-achieving employee to their first management position and been disappointed by their performance?
It’s a common problem as, for many businesses, awarding a managerial role is the only way to reward (and retain) good people. The problem is that many people are ill-suited to the position of manager, and without the right support and development, they can fail badly.
Given that only 20% of people in managerial positions today are natural managers, it’s madness to believe a first-time manager can be installed and left to get on with it without any management training.
Is it any wonder so many of these unfortunate men and women fail dismally?
