5 Signs You Have Accidental Managers.

And what you can do about them.

So-called 'accidental managers' are employees who have been promoted because they're good at their craft, but lack specific management training and skills to manage people.

Without this skillset to motivate and engage their teams, accidental managers negatively impact productivity, growth and culture within their organisations. It is estimated that four out of five managers are accidental managers, so it's little surprise that 43% of line managers rate their own manager as 'ineffective'.

The signs are easy to spot. They struggle to:

  1. Lead change
  2. Improve performance
  3. Embed strategic thinking into practice
  4. Exceed targets
  5. Be role models for their own teams

But what can you do about this?

Turn your accidental managers into Chartered Managers who have first-rate management skills and the confidence to lead and the ability to achieve results. Awarding your managers with Chartered Manager status is a time-efficient and cost-effective way for you to see a demonstrable return on your staff development investment.

Lots of people can call themselves managers, but they don’t really have the professional skillset needed to be a success. Chartered Manager status adds credibility.
