There are not many people who are born leaders. In the words of Shakespeare “some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them." A lot of people in management fall into this last category. If your managers are not natural leaders then how can you spot if they need additional support?
Poor leaders can set a business back, they can damage profits, cause the moral of staff to plummet and bring about high staff turn-over. None of these things are good for business. These managers aren’t doing these things on purpose, they could be under pressure at home or work or both, be new to management or lack understanding. Spotting the signs early can prevent future issues, but the signs can be quite varied so… what signs can you look for?
