On Management Today we're reading about a recent study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in the UK that suggests managers think they are a bit better than they really are!
Management Today) 80% of managers think their staff are happy with their management skills, whilst only 58% of their team members agree with them!
Another big disparity was in the amount of contact that managers had with their team members. 60% of managers claimed they met every team member individually at least twice a month, whereas only 24% of team members said they met their manager with such frequency!
We've loved reading the post because it is these two issues that Kebuki is designed to solve - a lack of communication and irregular feedback on managerial performance.
We don't believe that managers are bad because they want to be - just because they don't have any tools to help them be a great leader.
Kebuki enables managers to set reminders to support their team members consistently meaning no-one gets left behind.
Kebuki Ratings enable team members to give monthly feedback to managers on how they are doing.
There should be no reason for managers and team members to have such differing views on how managers are performing.
How do you think your team rate you? Do they think you are as good as you think you are?!
