How do you change a great employee into a great leader?
The transition from buddy to boss can be the most difficult in any person’s career. Too often it is assumed that a high performing employee will naturally progress to an effective and engaging manager.
You wouldn’t let someone drive a car without lessons, yet research shows that the majority of organisations put new managers in charge of their businesses and people without any training. This is probably why 60% of new managers fail or under-perform in their first two years.
Yet those organisations who do develop their managers see organisational performance improve by 23%.
So how can businesses help new and inexperienced managers shift their mind-set and behaviours so that they stop doing and start leading?
