“People don’t leave companies, they leave managers.”

Actually, they leave both because the two are invariably connected. Poor leaders /managers survive and thrive in companies with poor workplace cultures. The organization at least tolerates them and often rewards them without realizing or caring about the turnover they create. How many companies can you name that are actually committed – in actions as well as words – to mentoring, coaching and development of their people below the senior level….at the staff and first level leader and manager levels, where most of the real work is actually done? Very few organizations want to invest in helping these people develop while at the same time insisting that their succession planning prioritizes promoting from within.

It is a bizarre blind spot in organizations …one that MIG & Associates can help resolve. We have extensive experience working with front line managers and their teams to improve performance, engagement, and overall effectiveness. Contact us to find out more.
