Manager of the year award


Yes thats right TOLD to come up with criteria for a manager of the year award. Now all manner of consultancy skills and methods were tried to find out what the chief exec wants to get from it and the answer was stilll the same.....

So,,,, i have given up and now i am scratching my head thinking criteria. Any ideas?

  1. Competency Framework?
    Hi Craig,

    Does your organisation have some sort of competency framework for managers at all, as this is normally a good place to start for ideas. If not, I have a framework and a set of criteria that we use here I could send you. Obviously you’d need to tweak it to fit your industry sector.

    For example, these managers, have they maintained a stable team throughout the year? Have they grown their business areas? Have they come up with solid, profitable business initiatives that have benefitted the organisation as a hwole, not just their teams? Have they invested in all team members (time / training / mentoring etc)?

    Is it the CEO who is choosing from the management team, or are you opening this out to the organisation so that teams can nominate?

    If you need further help, please feel free to contact me:

  2. Assisting Staff Performance
    Here is a simple and easy solution, Send out a voting slip, ask everyone to vote for their manager of the year using the following question, which manager in the organisation do you feel is best at helping and allowing their staff achieve a high level of performance.

    You may be suprised at the result, Also employees have ownership and Involvement

    I also hope it embodies the central leadership requirement of the organisation.
