Avoiding the Bad Manager Problem: Webinar Recap

Does your organization have any bad managers? If you’re like nearly every other organization in the world, you can probably think of at least one or two managers at your organization who are just not good at managing people.

In this webinar, we were joined by Mark Allen, an author, consultant, and Professor at Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School. As an expert in talent management and human resources, he has encountered what he calls the “bad manager problem” over and over again: the fact that nearly every organization has poor managers who may have been promoted into a management role without any thought given to the skills and competencies that make someone a successful manager.

In this webinar, we covered:

  • The reasons why so many companies have bad managers
  • The costs of keeping bad managers in management positions
  • The competencies that define good managers
  • The importance of carefully selecting managers based on competencies
  • The need to measure manager performance based on their ability to hire, develop, engage, and retain employees
