Leadership Development for Middle ManagersL
What is a great indicator for the success of your company or organization? According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s the ability of your middle managers to inspire the people in their teams. Leadership development and execution, not just by the CEO, but by everybody who leads a team.
The study that triggered the WSJ article, is done by Gallup, on the future of work. “Five years ago, the Gallup organization embarked on one of the most ambitious deep dives it has ever conducted; an analysis of the future of work based on a decade of input from nearly 2 million employees and more than 300,000 business units. The results confirmed something Gallup had seen before: a company’s productivity depends, to a high degree, on the quality of its managers.”
What else did that study show? First of all, it showed that managers didn’t just influence the results their teams achieved. Due to that influence, it even explained 70% of the results. In other words, if you want your company to be full of excellent teams, getting the right manager is 70% of the battle.
Mentorphile commented on the article by the WSJ and the Gallup study. He stated: “What sort of return can businesses expect from doing this? According to Gallup, the top 10% of companies, ranked by engagement, posted profit gains of 26% through the last recession compared with a 14% skid at comparable employers.”
