“You have been a great individual contributor. Now you are a manager, so here are five direct reports—don’t screw them up.”
That is like telling a 16 year old, “you have been a passenger for 16 years, of course you know how to drive. Here are the keys!”
Manager’s need “driver’s ed” too so they can effectively drive their team forward
When I share this concept with leaders across Corporate America, they almost always smile and admit that this is the state of Leadership Development in more organizations.
If we are going to rescue Corporate Exhausted Heroes and save the culture of work in America from being about exhaustion, we need our good managers to be developed intentionally through coaching and education.. If we fail to prepare them to handle their new assignments, we can’t be surprised if they fall.
I am offering a Manager Playbook Workshop on Zoom to get managers the tools, tips, and templates they need to be successful. I am so passionate that managers need this training that I have discounted it through the rest of the year.
