Ideally, your company should strive to develop and enrich the talent pool you already have, allowing you to promote from within your ranks. This helps you avoid the expense and learning curve involved with recruiting outside candidates for management positions.
White Paper – Eight Signs of Incompetent Managers
Like winning coaches, successful managers are both talented and skilled. But if a manager lacks natural talent, his or her odds of success are lower. We indentified and explored eight signs of incompetent managers.
How Poor Management Affects Your Business
If your current workforce lacks sufficient employees with strong management skills or leadership potential, you may struggle to fill these positions. Even worse, you may end up with people in these important roles who lack the management skills needed to serve as effective leaders. This has a trickle-down effect, as it is likely that the staff who report to (and are supervised by) these ineffective leaders will in turn not perform at their best, either.
By nurturing and developing strong managers among your staff, your entire operation benefits. In addition, this ensures that the team members they manage will perform to their full potential, thus ensuring an ongoing cycle of strong performers, and a robust management pipeline.
