ONLY 12% OF BUSINESSES INVEST SUFFICIENTLY IN THEIR FRONT-LINE LEADERS
According to Harvard Business Review, front-line managers, foremen, and supervisors make up roughly 60% of a company’s management ranks. They are the glue that holds a business together and they are responsible for the most critical day-to-day performance metrics.
However, most front-line leaders are often promoted up from the workforce without the proper training around best practices and leadership skills necessary to function effectively and increase productivity. A 2014 Harvard Business Review report uncovers that only 12% of the businesses surveyed invest sufficiently in their front-line managers.
Rarely do they know how to motivate people and successfully integrate the tools, methods, systems, and processes required for your firm to operate at full capacity. Yet, as much as 95% of your operational throughput flows through their hands.
Your front-line leaders wind up chasing problems and fire-fighting every day. Over time they learn to survive in the chaos, leading to disengagement from their job and sub-standard performance. Ultimately, they may burn out and leave. And in this tight labor market, finding someone to replace them can be time-consuming and costly. When trying to make these front-line leaders more effective, companies face many challenges.
