Think You Chose the Right Person for Supervision?


A study says 82% of your managers just can't cut it!

According to "What's Working in Human Resources" April news, it's no secret managers are often the cause of some of HR's biggest headaches!

Companies fail to pick the right person for the role - 82% of the time according to new information from Gallup.

Gallup's research shows that only 18% of current managers demonstrate a high level of talent for managing others.

What qualities go into making a great manager?

  • Motivate every staff member to take action and engage them with a compelling mission and vision
  • Have the assertiveness to drive outcomes and the ability to overcome adversity and resistance
  • Create a culture of clear accountability
  • Build relationships that create trust, open dialogue and full transparency
  • Make decisions that are based on productivity

What's a common mistake companies make when choosing manager?

Promoting people to supervision because the company thinks they deserve it - rather than because the person is talented enough to handle it.

Remember: Good managers can contribute a 48% higher profit to their firm compared to mediocre supervisors, according to Gallup.
