When faced with a group of managers/supervisors who have risen
through the ranks often you only have your gut to tell you if they
are getting the job done. In this case the job is, motivating,
empowering your employees. their job is to get the work done while
developing and motivating your employees. If that is not
happening then your turnover
will be costing you more than you can afford on the bottom line.
Our Assessment programs can uncover specific areas that would show
when a manager/supervisor would benefit from training, or if you
should even bother spending money on this person.
One of my first audit clients summed it up very well. He
explained to me that he
was an excellent architect. He was such a good architect, that his
firm had put him in charge
of all other architects. The problem was that, although he had seven
years of university
training which gave him the background to work as an architect, he
had never received the
training he needed to plan, budget, organize, or supervise
His story is common. Many organizations promote people without
providing the development
or training they need to be effective managers. If managers do not
receive basic training in
managing people, directing and motivating them, organizing
workloads, and dealing with
difficult employees, they must exert undue effort to get the results
they want with a hit or miss
approach. Some are successful; others are not.
Management Assessment is an invaluable development aid that will help transform
managers, supervisors and other employees into
dynamic, modern mangers and supervisors, leaders.
