10 WAYS ORGANIZATIONS SET THEIR MANAGERS UP FOR FAILURE
And how you can turn that around
According to the Corporate Executive Board, 60% of manager fail or underperform in their first two years.
Do organizations place people in management roles so they can fail? We hope not. At least not intentionally. We think many do so unintentionally. In this presentation, we discuss how organizations do this and what the costs are of doing so. We also provide recommendations for organizations to set their managers up for success.
Based on the book, The Successful Manager’s Roadmap, we cover:
- Selecting the best candidates for management positions.
- Why it’s critical to clarify the role of the manager in the organization.
- What information must be provided to managers for their effectiveness.
- Supporting the manager’s need to get the ‘right’ people on board and the ‘wrong’ people out.
- What the manager is accountable for.
- The development needs of the manager.
LET’S GET REAL ABOUT HR’S ROLE IN EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Why organization’s need to clarify the roles of leaders, managers and human resources in engaging employees
Where does everyone look in the organization when they discuss employee engagement or the lack thereof of employee engagement. Most would point to HR as the responsble party. Does ultimate responsibility really reside in human resources? What about senior management? What about the first-level manager and all the layers in between?
This is one of the first questions an organization should ask when that organization decides what to do to improve employee engagement.
In the presentation, we will:
- Discuss the relationship between organizational culture and employee engagement.
- Define employee engagement.
- Describe the drivers of employee engagement.
- Discuss who owns what part of driving employee engagement in an organization.
