Are Your Managers Managing?

  2. 2. UNDERMANAGEMENT HIDES IN PLAIN SIGHT Undermanagement – When leaders, managers, and supervisors fail to consistently spend sufficient time in one-on-one management dialogues with their direct-reports to provide enough guidance and direction, to assist with project and resource planning, and to provide candid feedback, troubleshooting, and regular course-correction
  3. 3. 8 CONSEQUENCES OF UNDERMANAGEMENT 1. Unnecessary problems occur. 2. Small problems that should have been solved with relative ease instead get worse before they are identified and solved. 3. Resources are squandered and managers and employees spend time salvaging resources and acquiring substitute resources 4. Employees fail to do tasks according to established best practices, which is the number one cause of rework. 5. Low-performers are not identified or held accountable. 6. Mediocre-performers often mistake themselves for high performers. 7. High-performers suffer diminished morale and are more likely to leave their jobs voluntarily. 8. Managers spend more time performing lower level tasks and have a harder time delegating.
  5. 5. HIGH-STRUCTURE, HIGH-SUBSTANCE COMMUNICATION Every day we teach leaders and managers the best practices in high-structure, high-substance communication:  Getting in the habit of building regular, structured, one-on-one dialogues with every person they manage  Spelling out expectations clearly and relentlessly  Tracking performance in writing  Solving small problems before they turn into big problems  Removing stubborn low performers  Rewarding high performers when they deserve to be rewarded (and only when they deserve it!)
