    • The Grovo Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research, among 500 U.S. middle managers at companies with 500+ employees between June 3rd and 13th, 2016, using an email invitation and an online survey.
      -A startling 98% of managers surveyed feel managers at their company need more training to deal with important issues such as professional development, conflict resolution, employee turnover, time management, and project management.

    -Mid-level managers said more than two out of five of their company’s managers, on average, were unprepared for management when they assumed their role, and that less than half of managers are highly effective.

    -87% of middle managers wish they had received more management training when they first became a manager.
    After training- 80% of managers who do change their behavior after training maintain those changes for just 6 months or less before going back to their old ways.

    -98% of middle managers believe key objectives of their company - such as
    employee retention, office morale, client satisfaction, and revenue - would improve if managers were trained to be effective more quickly.

      Nearly three quarters of organisations in England reported a deficit of management and leadership skills in 2012. This deficit is contributing to our productivity gap with countries like the US, Germany and Japan.
    • Nearly two-thirds (65 per cent) of organisations who responded to the survey report senior managers are deficient in management and leadership skills, while the vast majority (85 per cent) report line managers and supervisors lack these skills. The deficit of management and leadership skills at line manager and supervisor level is particularly apparent in the manufacturing and production sector (86 per cent) and least common in the public sector (76
    • Managers struggle to self-assess. Research shows that many managers are unable to make an objective assessment of the effectiveness of their own management practices.

    Possible Reasons: UK managers are significantly less well qualified with substantial skills gaps.

    • Relatively low levels of training, shortages of key skills, the failure to apply skills strategically, and employer concern about the relevance of training provision, have also been identified as potential reasons.
    • difficulties in recruiting graduates with the right skills, particularly for small and medium sized companies;
    • a perception that leadership and management skills are something you “pick up” on the job;
