It’s not me, it’s you

It’s not me, it’s you

There isn’t just one cause – the pandemic has pushed underlying issues to the surface, triggering a widespread re-evaluation of what’s important in our work lives. One thing that will always be on that list, however, is good management.

The data suggests bad management is a real and significant issue. According to data from DDI’s Frontline Leader’s Project, 57% of people have left a job to get away from a bad manager. In fact, Gallup found that 70% of the variance in employee engagement depends on the manager.

Few managers ask themselves the hard questions: Am I the reason people are leaving? Was it because of something I did, or something I didn’t do? They assume they’re not the problem, their employees are.

A survey of 5,247 hiring managers who’d hired 20,000 employees said that after 18 months 46% of newly hired employees failed and only 20% achieved success.

How to better support your team

  • You should always be asking for peer review on a people management problem before you take action, whether that’s from your own manager or your HR team.
  • Don’t blame, own. As a manager, it’s all too easy to abdicate responsibility and blame the person on the other side of the table when they are not doing as well as you’d like.
  • Giving feedback is your most powerful tool for growing your people and your team. It’s also one of the hardest to get right.
  • Celebrate your team’s successes and let team members know they’re making an impact.
