Managers at work: Helping new leaders succeed
Seven common problems hamper the success of new managers in technology-intensive organizations. Address these problems successfully and many subsequent management development activities will be significantly enhanced. Their resolution is a necessary prerequisite for building a developmental climate in organizations. The problems include: 1. mismatch between the personality characteristics of the new manager and the demands of the manager's job, 2. inadequate understanding of what the new manager's job really demands, and 3. an inadequately functioning dual ladder.
