According to the Harvard Business Review, the average age of a new manager is 30. The first time they receive personalized leadership development is age 42. That is 12 years of managers winging it and trying to learn leadership skills all through trial and error. That is 12 years of building unproductive leadership habits. Leadership development is being offered 12 years too late.

The skills and talent that make individual contributors successful are different from what makes managers successful. This requires us to help first-time managers redefine what success looks like and identify the skills they individually need to develop in their new role. First-time managers are balancing how to manage a new team, a new role, and expectations of themselves. This is a lot of pressure and can result in first-time managers feeling burnt out, leading to disengagement and ultimately turnover. This doesn’t factor in the ripple effect these individuals have on the team, the morale and overall productivity.
Avoid the pitfalls of the 12-year gap and start investing in your high potentials and new managers now.
