Management Development & Evaluation Solutions
In today’s fast-paced work environment, many managers are thrust into leadership roles without formal training. Their success, or lack of it, has a tremendous impact on profitability. A recent Gallup survey of more than 1 million employees found that the most prevalent cause for people leaving their jobs is their immediate supervisor and that poorly managed work groups are on average 50% less productive and 44% less profitable than well-managed groups.
Management development can be used to improve poor management practices and leadership development at any point in the employee life cycle. By keeping a record of your employees’ talents, skills and preferences, you will be able to help your managers become better leaders.
With objective, quantifiable data about individual managers, you can make the best possible development and training decisions. By identifying managers who need improvement, the areas in which they need further development, and the progress they have made toward improving the necessary skills, you can set your organization up for future success.
Management development with the CheckPoint 360°™ System works in three parts:
First is an extensive evaluation that is used to provide managers with multi-rater feedback from those who observe their performance: their bosses, subordinates, and peers. This is an important process because increased awareness motivates managers to change the way they do their jobs.
The second part is an analysis that alerts top management to potential managerial problems that can develop when managers’ goals are not in alignment with the goals of the organization. Having this information encourages management development on an individual level as well as across the organization. This information also strengthens communication and builds stronger organizations.
The third is an organized management development program that addresses specific leadership skills identified in the survey as requiring improvement. Managers can pursue self-improvement in the areas most essential to increasing their job performance. They are given a customized leadership development plan consisting of 18 different modules. Unlike many courses and seminars, management training activities are integrated into a manager’s daily tasks.
TCA can show your company a process for management evaluation and help your managers improve.
