First Time Manager


A study was conducted by The Ken Blanchard Companies with over 500 new managers, sometime back. It revealed that only 15% received new manager training prior to switching or soon after switching into the role of manager. As a result, at least 49% felt grossly unprepared to succeed. More than half reported receiving less than adequate training in critical areas like goal setting, inter-personal skills and performance counselling. Even after 6 months, nearly 63% of respondents still felt less effective in the new role and after 12 months 50% still felt somewhat ineffective. Make sure your managers are ready…. DON’T LET THEM SINK, IT IS NEVER TOO LATE!
