First time managers set up to fail
Did you know:
- Only 18% of HR professionals surveyed believe that their organisation invests to a great extent in training and skilling people to take on their first leadership role.
- 38% believe the first time leaders in their organisation are poorly supported in their roles.
Putting a great performer into a role leading or managing a bunch of former colleagues, without adequate training, development and support is a recipe for disaster.
Some will adapt and apply themselves successfully to the role, even without support through their own fortitude and focus, but many will flounder.
Actions to improve the level of investment and support in first time leaders will pay a handsome dividend in the form of improved success and reduced failure.
