Super Manager


How You Will Benefit

Many studies have been conducted to determine the reasons that employees leave their jobs. Most reasons point squarely to their bosses:
39% said their supervisors didn’t keep their promises.
37% said their supervisors failed to give credit when due.
31% said their supervisors gave them the “silent treatment.”
27% said their supervisors made negative comments about them to others.
23% said their supervisors blamed others to cover up their own mistakes or embarrassment.
As a result, employees reported feeling more tension, mistrust, and exhaustion and were less satisfied and less likely to take on additional tasks or work longer hours. In other words, managers directly affect their employees’ productivity and satisfaction in the workplace. In another study, 44% of employees said that their individual supervisor was the most important factor in increasing employee engagement. And when employees are engaged, 70% say they have a good understanding of how to meet customer needs (versus 17% of nonengaged employees), 78% would recommend their company’s products or services (versus 3% of nonengaged), and 86% say they very often feel happy at work (versus 11% of nonengaged).
The bottom line: Managers influence employees’ satisfaction at work, for better or worse. This program will help you become a super manager—someone who everyone wants to work for.
