New Managers, Wanna-be Managers, Lost Managers!
Are you feeling lost and alone in this management thing?
Would you like to swap ideas with others feeling the same as you?
New Manager Mastermind is a free-form discussion group to help new managers learn how to manage. This group is for new managers, wanna-be managers, or managers who never got any assistance.
According to Corporate Executive Board, new managers, on average, take up to 2 years to get fully up-to-speed. Average managers score less than a 5 on a 10-pt scale, and only reach "acceptable" performance at 2 years in the role. High-performing managers are able to reach an "acceptable” rating (7 out of 10) in a year. High-performing leadership transitions happen 50% faster than average!
Poor leadership transitions reduce direct reports’ performance (-15%), intent to stay (-21%), and engagement (-9%). What this means is even if they do stick around through the transition, they don't do well, and aren't engaged. Transitioning leaders affect their own direct reports, their new manager, their previous manager, and their own peers. The ripple effect is broad.
60% of newly promoted managers are rated as under-performing.
These are some of the issues holding new managers back from being high-performing:
- where to start,
- how do I know what my team needs,
- how do I manage my time and theirs,
- how do I accomplish work through my team,
- how to have difficult conversations.
