15 May What you don’t know can hurt you. Here’s what you (might) not know!
People who work for a bad manager for more than four years have a 64% higher risk of heart disease. It turns out that what you don’t know can hurt you! Most managers try to lead other people as they want to be managed, but that doesn’t work. Here’s what else you might not know (and what to do about it)!
- People who work for a bad manager for more than four years have a 64 percent higher risk of heart disease (yikes!)
- 94 percent of employees say that they would stay at a company longer if that organization simply invested in helping them learn, and provide opportunities to learn to grow in their career (even if they aren’t moving up the corporate ladder)
- Monthly development coaching opportunities create trusted connections between a manager and their direct report, or a mentor and their mentee (whether in an informal or formal mentorship program)
- Only 20 percent of employees understand how their role adds value
- Strategic planning that includes representation from all people at all levels of the organization not just C-suite or board are more successful
- Most managers struggle with prioritizing and managing multiple competing priorities
Most importantly, the worst thing we as leaders can do is nothing. We must take action to identify manager training and other resources, take action to improve engagement (even if engagement is high!), take action to better the hiring processes, and take action to improve.
