Helping New Leaders Succeed
Moving from being an individual contributor to a leader of the team is perhaps the most challenging and difficult transition people can face in their professional lives. And, while the transition is difficult, it is also important. If frontline leaders are not leading successfully, productivity, morale, retention, trust and much more can be severely impacted.
Consider this fact: 40% of new managers fail within the first 18 months of their promotion. In other words, they get promoted because they were good at their job, not because they can actually manage people. Why do they fail? Because they don’t get the training and support they need to deal with difficult situations, conflict, negotiations, HR issues, hiring, firing and many other new situations they’ll have to face for the first time. According to a 2014 Harvard Business Review article, “Frontline Managers: Are They Given the Leadership Tools to Succeed?,” only 12% of organizations invest enough to develop great managers.
