Often on our coaching and consultancy programmes, the discussions come round to new ways of thinking; that is, what do today’s managers do that yesterday’s managers didn’t?
It’s an intriguing question and one that would fill many books with the myriads of answers that could be given.
Many old-style managers still exist out there (Lord knows I’ve worked with most of them!) and they are still making decisions, solving problems and creating plans based on the old paradigm of management.
A question for you….
What would you consider to be one of the most critical people issues facing businesses today?
Wow, that should make you stop in your tracks!
When I spend time with managers of businesses I consult with, and the subject comes round to challenges they face in everyday business, the subject of talent (or lack of it) always raises itself.
