In today’s economy, we all have to do more with less. Pressure to perform is intense, which occasionally heightens emotions and stress, especially among managers. There are five distinct signs managers are at risk of failing:
1. Poor interpersonal and communication skills
2. Insufficient leadership skills
3. Resistance to change
4. Inability to deliver expected results or hit deadlines
5. Failure to see outside their functional responsibilities or departments
The good news is that most of these issues are coachable. It is critical to intervene quickly . . . before a manager begins to negativity impact the people they manage.
