“People Don’t Leave Bad Companies, They Leave Bad Managers”
Markus Buckingham

The Leadership Reality

Whether an individual contributor or professional getting promoted into his or her first formal leadership position, or employees who have been managing for years, far too often, organizations take for granted the depth of skills and effectiveness their managers actually possess. The numbers prove the reality of how effective management skills can contribute to the success of an organization and the critical need for new manager and ongoing leadership training. 


New Manager Statistics:

26% of current managers said they weren’t ready to become a leader when they started managing others
Managers not ready 26%
Nearly 60% of current managers say they didn’t receive any management training
Didn’t receive any management training 60%
60% of new managers underperform their first 2 years causing performance gaps, low productivity and employee turnover
Underperformance first 2 years 60%
Gallup’s research reveals the critical need for training – only 10% of people possess the talent to manage
Ready 10%

All Manager Statistics:

Gallup poll of more than 1 million workers employed in the US shows - People leave managers not companies - nearly 50% of employee turnover is mostly a manager issue

The Conference Board Report revealed that over 66% of managers are perceived as being weak leaders

74% of workers feel they weren't achieving their full potential at work due to lack of training & development opportunities³

The U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics found that companies with fewer than 100 employees gave only 12 minutes of manager training every six months. Organizations with 100 – 500 employees provided just 6 minutes.

The Cost to Organizations:

A lack of managerial leadership has a direct correlation to high turnover, low productivity and increased costs:

  • Every year disengaged employees cost the U.S. Economy $370 billion. And the primary driver of that lost productivity is poor supervision
  • Poorly managed work groups are on average 50 percent less productive and 44 percent less profitable than well-managed groups
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics - median tenure is 3.2 years for workers age 25 to 34 years compared to 10.3 years for workers age 55 to 64. Turnover for replacement costs an organization
    • For entry-level employees - 30-50 percent of their annual salary
    • For mid-level employees, it costs upwards of 150 %of annual salary
    • For high-level or highly specialized employees, at 400% annual salary
