Are Your Managers Managing?

Most managers aren’t managing

How do you know ifManaging Wordcloud yours are?

When your managers are not managing effectively, you’re drawn into the day to day detail instead of leading your business

Effective managers free up your time to lead the business.

Ineffective managers are one of the biggest constraints on business growth*

Ineffective management is estimated to be costing UK businesses over £19 billion per year in lost working hours.

43 per cent of UK managers rate their own line manager as ineffective.

New managers are often appointed because they were brilliant at what they did. But have you invested in making them effective at what you want them to do now?

All too often they are lost, lack confidence, struggle to prioritise and are less productive. The result is teams that are de-motivated, lack direction and under-perform.

Through our proven “Stepping Up to Management” programme we will accelerate how they gain and implement the knowledge they need to become effective managers, managing effective teams.
