“Front-line managers can have the single largest impact on your organization.” ~ HR Professionals Magazine
Front-line Managers Interact Daily With Their Direct Reports
Individual contributors notice and care if their direct supervisors are good at their jobs, and if they aren’t then productivity, attitudes and profitability suffer.
Two-thirds of Managers are Seen as Weak
The Conference Board Report reveals the shocking survey that only one-third of supervisors and leaders are seen as strong.
An ineffective manager has far reaching effects:
Senior Leadership Feels The Impact
When front line managers aren’t equipped to develop their direct reports, senior leadership must get involved.
Seeing lower productivity and higher turnover with its impact on profitability, senior leaders need to take time away from higher level initiatives to see that the right people are being properly prepared for leadership.
Unprepared To Lead
According to The Ken Blanchard Companies®
Research proves 75% of employees who leave their jobs are quitting their bosses, and 60% of Millennials are already thinking of other job opportunities.
Because of this potential for fast high turn over, it's more important than ever for new leaders to have the coaching they need to ramp up quickly. With guidance they can be the leaders their direct reports need to be fully engaged and eager to carry out the company's mission.
