Hi, I’m Claire, CEO of Know Your Team.
Are you startup CEO, Co-Founder, CTO, COO, or Head of People searching for the quickest path to becoming a high performing team? If so, you may be overlooking the key to your answer: Upskilling your internally-promoted managers is one of your greatest levers.
Leadership is an overlooked lever for productivity. Research from 11,000 interviews has shown how effective management can account for a 30% increase in team productivity.
“Good intentions” leadership isn’t enough.
You’ve been internally promoting your high-performing individual contributors (ICs) to be managers. However, what made them excellent ICs does not translate to being excellent leaders, despite their good intentions. Only 1 in 10 managers have the innate talent to lead, all the other 9 desperately need training.
Typical training falls victim to the “Knowing-Doing” gap.
You give your managers books to read, hold internal L&D sessions, or perhaps enroll them in a one-off manager training session… but it flows in one ear and out the other. Researchers have a term for this: The “Knowing-Doing” gap – our propensity to know something is the right thing to do, yet our inability to enact it.
The solution: Contextualized Learning.
No matter how many books, bootcamps, or coaching sessions you put your managers through, unless they get the content they need exactly when they need it and get to practice it in their day-to-day, nothing will stick.
And you’ll want to do it fast. Waiting a day longer to help a manager be equipped with the skills they need is a disservice to everybody involved.
You don’t have to solve this alone.
We’ve spent the past decade distilling research across 30+ years and training 20,000+ people to create a leadership upskilling platform focused on addressing these exact challenges.
Let us do the heavy lifting for you. Schedule a demo today and make leadership your competitive advantage.
Look forward to hearing from you.
CEO, Know Your Team
