"True leaders bring out your personal best.
They ignite your human potential John Paul Warren

Even in today's technological world, people are the fuel of any business. Igniting that fuel relies on a cocktail of ingredients, but great leadership skills are amongst one of the most powerful.

 

Did you know that UK businesses are missing out on £84bn a year because of poor quality people management (1).  In addition, almost half of employees have left a job because of a bad boss (2).

 

When an employee has shown good technical skills and abilities over time, it can be all too easy to assume that they will naturally be good at managing people too and give them people management responsibilities.  However, sometimes they may be completely out of their depth and if they are not trained, this can have significant negative effects on them, their team and the business.
