Senior business leaders unequipped to manage and develop people
Around half of HR professionals believe that senior business leaders don’t have the people management behaviours and skills needed to get the best from their people, according to the latest CIPD HR Outlook survey of HR professionals.
Performance management and people management were voted the top leadership behaviours and skills needed by organisations over the next three years. However, out of those who chose performance management, more than half (53%) said senior leaders’ current skills in this area were ineffective. Similarly, 44% of HR professionals felt senior leaders’ people management skills were ineffective.
