How to choose a great Manager

Nearly 3 in 4 Employers affected by a bad hire, according to a recent CBS:

The role of a manager in the workplace is perhaps the most significant in terms of impact on an organization’s performance. A good manager can have an impact on not only the well-being but also the engagement and productivity of their team. Unfortunately, a bad manager can exactly have the opposite effect.

Bad managers can cause a long list of problems in the workplace. A bad manager leads to low engagement. Lower engagement can further lead to declining productivity, high employee turnover, damage company’s reputation, and reduced morale.

The cost of recruitment and training becomes prohibitive and can impact a business’s ability to continue operations. If it’s not recognized, it can lead to a toxic and uninviting work atmosphere.

If your company is similar to most, they select employees for middle management positions because they have been at their job a long time or because they have very well at their current job, which higher management hopes will translate into being a good manager.

Promoting from within is a great idea for a variety of reasons. Like it rewards and retains your best people for the long term. It also helps strengthen your culture.
As much as you might like to think that every one of your managers has the best of intentions, they may not be a good fit for a manager at all.

The signs are often all around us when someone isn’t a good fit to become a manager. Yet, management ignored inevitability while promoting someone because they have been around for long enough.

If you don’t put the effort and attention into making those promoted successful, it can backfire massively.
