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 5 on a 10-pt scale, and only reach "acceptable" performance (7 out of 10) after 2 years in the role. High-performing managers are able to reach an "acceptable” rating in a year.
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.
