Survey: half of UK managers are ineffective

Siemens teamwork 015

50% of management are ineffective – but which half?!

A recent survey from the Chartered Management Institute and Penna suggests that nearly half of UK line managers are ineffective. What’s more, the survey shows a direct link between management effectiveness and organisational success; only 39% of managers in low performing businesses rated their line managers as effective, compared to 80% of managers in high performing companies.

What managers are looking for

If research is suggesting that managers might not be as effective as they could be, then this begs the question – what help do managers feel they need to perform better? Managers’ top learning needs were:

1. leadership

2. coaching

3. communications

4. managing change

5. feedback (giving, but also getting?)

Fortunately, I provide workshops and coaching in all these areas (phew). So whether your team need to come to a manager development workshop or be coached more privately 1-1, do contact me for a proposal to support your needs.
