Making new managers productive quickly

When an organization hires new managers, it has a lot of expectations from them. Considering the potential they have, they are seen as future leaders of the organization. They are expected to take on a number of roles. They take on a lot of responsibilities, which is why it is a given that they could take some time to get their eye in into the job. Getting accustomed to the new environment, the reportees, the new work and sometimes new business, and very importantly, the new organizational culture, all take time to sink in.

However, a mistake most organizations do is that instead of hastening the new manager into getting adjusted into the new role and making her productive at the earliest; they define the functions of the new manager rather vaguely and ambiguously. As a result, when a manager is taken for her technical excellence; she ends up being made to work in a role that is different from the one offered to her. Instead of being made to lead, the new manager could end up being placed in a position of secondary importance, something that will further impede her switch to the productive gear.

This is a big mistake, as it impedes the manager’s transition into the productive mode. It also puts the new hire off, giving negative feelings about the new organization. With this, the foundation for an early departure is laid. This is bad for the organization, because it ends up losing a high potential candidate. It reflects HR’s poor ability to tap the immense potential the new manager would have brought and turning it to the organization’s advantage.

Skills needed for new managers

  • Switching from relying on formal authority to establish credibility

When new managers lead others, they need to have a greater level of self-awareness and core skills such as strategic thinking, influencing, increasing team performance and maintaining a goal oriented vision.

The manager needs to be open to learning, too

Marcia will show how people promoted into managerial positions newly need to discover new ways and levels of learn to let go of old ones, even if they have been valuable till now. Finding new ways of deriving personal and career satisfaction from their work and measuring their success is a critical mental switch that effective managers must make.
