“Ed was a great engineer, really showed some leadership potential. So we made him a manager. What a mistake! He’s not a good manager and besides that, the group isn’t producing. I just don’t get it.”
Sound familiar? With businesses moving at the speed of light and executives juggling more priorities than a circus performer juggles clubs, new managers often fail to receive the mentoring they need to guarantee their success.
The result: new managers who are ill-equipped to perform their duties, teams that lack cohesiveness, and departments that fail to meet business objectives. What looked like a great career development opportunity becomes a frustrating failure for both the new manager and the business.
Supervision requires a unique skill set that must be acquired and practiced. Frontline Supervision not only sets the foundation for quality supervision, it uses real-life scenarios specific to the business and action-oriented training that produces immediate results.
Executive and Management Team Development
At the next executive/management meeting, look around the table at your team. Does it look like a team to you? Does it feel like a team? A group of people taking up space in a conference room does not make a team. In fact, if you’re really not a team, don’t call yourselves one. That will lessen the damage you do to your employees. Is this strong language? Perhaps. But think about the importance of an executive team to the overall health of the organization and its bottom line. Great teams don’t come without investment in time, personal commitment, trust...and conflict.
