Managers

Managers are the most under-leveraged asset in your business, yet they are also the primary accelerator of your strategy. In large part, they manage in the only way they know how – based on their own experiences being managed. So if they had poor managers in the past, they’re just perpetuating the problem. Even if you have adequate managers, are you and your business content with good? Probably not.

The Impact of Great Managers

Employee engagement

Great managers can significantly improve employee engagement because most employees leave managers, not the business.

Strategy understanding

A front line that delivers high levels of service does so when they have strong managers that understand the business strategy and know how to bring out the best in their people.

Bring the strategy to life

New processes, changing behaviors, mindset shifts – some or all of these may be required when a new strategy is rolled out. Great managers understand what’s required to drive new strategies and the best way to connect their people and their roles to that change.

Only 10% of Working People can Be a Manager

According to Gallup, only 10% of working people possess the talent to be great managers. But that’s because they’re the most underinvested in group in the entire business. Managers bridge the gaps between leaders and strategic intent and how well the front line brings that strategy to life. Many managers are promoted because they were excellent individual contributors, but that doesn't mean they know how to lead people. Way to set them up to fail!
