Gallup: 1 in 10 People Have What It Takes to Be a Great Manager
Do you have what it takes to be a great manager?
According to a Gallup study, only one in 10 people have what it takes to be a great manager, and companies fail to choose the proper managerial candidate 82 percent of the time.
About one in five managers demonstrates the ability to manager others, Gallup found.
According to the research, a great manager motivates employees, handles adversity, creates a culture of accountability and responsibility, builds trust and transparency, and makes decisions based on productivity instead of politics.
The study also found that only 30 percent of American workers are enthusiastic about their workplace, and 54 percent of workers say they’re not engaged.
Ed Butowsky, manager at Chapwood Investments, was on “America’s News Headquarters” to discuss the research. He said companies should do internal market research to find out what workers are looking for in their workplace.
