According to careerbuilder.com, more than 60% of new leaders don’t get any training at all. And even if your organization does provide some training, it often comes too late and lacks a focus on leadership skills that can help your new supervisors become effective in communicating with, collaborating with, and coaching their team.
And the sad truth is that 40% of new managers fail within the first 18 months of promoting them. Why? Because they don’t get the training they need to:
Deal with people
Manage other people’s work
Be good at project management
Hire and fire
Deal with HR issues
Communicate goals and expectations clearly (leaving everyone floundering)
In other words, they get promoted because they were good at their job -- good at the "doing" -- not because they can actually manage people or projects and report to the higher-ups.
Now, there’s a place where first-time managers and supervisors can learn the kinds of things it usually takes managers years to learn -- At Bud to Boss, new supervisors can get this quality, focused, practical supervisor training in only two days.
