Effective managers build trust, inspire employees and motivate teams to achieve business goals. Ineffective managers create resentment resulting in employee turnover. Manager effectiveness can be measured. Evaluating your managers’ performance can have a big impact on the overall engagement of your employees and success of your company. Open, honest feedback from employees will empower your managers to truly inspire their teams. The relationship between an employee and their manager is one of the most powerful drivers of engagement. A manager’s competencies impact the productivity of their teams.
Manager performance evaluations provide the information needed to help managers improve their effectiveness. Do they take charge and get things done? Are they taking organized actions? Do they use their authority objectively and fairly? Do they motivate and inspire others using optimism and self-confidence?
The first step in developing a competent manager is completing an objective assessment of their performance. Once their strengths and growth opportunities are clear, the manager can work with a coach to develop action plans to improve. When managers perform effectively, teams and organizations thrive. But when they don’t, businesses fail.
