When it comes to company performance, it’s the leaders who tend to take the spotlight whilst the managers linger in the shadows. Yet the research tells us that if an organization wants to improve productivity, profitability, retention and engagement, it’s the humble managers that make the most difference.
It’s your managers who act as sentinels and have most influence – they give hope, nurture ambition, set boundaries, have tough performance conversations, build alliances, generate trust – and so deliver on top and bottom line results.
In fact, get good management right and watch performance rise by anywhere between 12-29%.
But recruiting new managers is often expensive and definitely risky. Building the skills of your current brood of managers costs less, delivers results faster and adds to the feeling that ‘they care about me’.
