Is bad management harming your organisation?


As the fragile economy begins to mend, many organisations are having to adapt to new business realities.  This means embracing constant change in order to build new capabilities that are more effective and innovative – and deliver higher performance.

Our world is highly competitive – never more so – its technology is constantly evolving.  Customers, internal and external, are constantly changing their expectations - and attracting and retaining the best talent is ever more competitive.

This puts an enormous pressure on front line managers and leaders  Not only do they have to translate the organisation’s vision of growth into reality, develop and engage their people but also contribute to their peer group as a member of the management team.

The Chartered management Institute (CMI) is the only chartered body specialising in management and leadership and feels that bad management is harming UK plc. In fact CMI research has found that:

Only 1 in 5 of managers are qualified

 63%  have no formal training

36% of employers say their managers are not proficient

70% of managers have witnessed bullying in their workplaces in the past 3 years

30% of managers believe the management style within their organisation is authoritarian

The top 3 prevailing management styles in the UK are authoritarian, reactive and bureaucratic

We have recently partnered with the CMI to  develop an accredited suite of leadership training designed to ensure that managers will be able to lead by example while still fulfilling their operational tasks.  Managers will also be able to build on their existing skills and ensure best leadership practice which will ultimately improve business performance.

In today’s uncertain economic environment, there’s so much change taking place within our businesses that we don’t have a chance to properly embed it.  The responsibility of making sense of all this falls into the hands of front line managers.  The problem is that many team leaders and managers are not ‘change ready’ which means they are unable to lead their teams successfully through the changes needed to achieve growth.

Consequently, managers and team leaders must acquire the critical skills for leading and managing change, so they can avoid the common pitfalls and take the key steps that will not only keep people engaged but invite ideas and innovation.  This means they will drive change through the business rather than constantly react to change imposed on them.  And that means giving them the right tools in their leadership toolkit – tools that the CMI courses can equip them with - to become the dynamic team leaders and managers they aspire to be.
