Most new supervisors struggle at how to be effective. Many fail.

Are You Ready to Lead?

Exactly how many new supervisors encounter difficulty is unclear, but by all accounts it’s a lot. Estimates of the number of new supervisors who fail in their first year range from 40 to 80 percent. Failure rates likely vary a bit by industry and country. But regardless of the specific number, this clearly represents a major problem. Victims include both the new supervisors — who have made an important change in their careers by becoming a supervisor, hoping that it would be a step up — for the employees they supervise, and for the companies where they all work.

In our latest white paper, So You’re a New Leader…Are You Ready to Lead?, you’ll find key insights to help. Find out why so many new managers struggle and why this is a problem that cannot go without being addressed. Learn why new supervisors fail and what skills a new supervisor needs to master common challenges and ultimately understand the key steps a new supervisor can take to achieve success.
