Issue 33 - 02 | Growing Great New Managers

By Erika Andersen
Published April 5, 2007 7:20 p.m.
We’ve all seen it: a successful employee promoted to manager is given no training and essentially pushed into the deep end and told to swim? According to Andersen, this approach to creating new managers is epidemic. Using an accessible gardening metaphor, Andersen, founder of Proteus International, contends that new managers must have a support system available to train them, while on the job, to become successful managers.
