Employees Join Companies, but They Leave Managers

 Ask the Question

You’re interviewing for a new manager and need to know how the candidates will tackle employee retention. Simple, if you want to know, you have to ask. If the idea of being so blunt bothers you, remember that you are hiring someone to help your organization succeed and that success is largely dependent on the atmosphere they create daily. Your job is to hire the person that can do it.  Our job is to help you make sure they can.

Managers can make or break your business depending on the depth of their skills and ability. So, you must figure out if they can get the daily work done but also, if they are able to build the relationships that make emp.  Can they find creative answers to complex problems by guiding their teams through effective brainstorming sessions?  Are you spending your time helping them deal with personnel issues that they should know how to handle? In short, can they further your vision or are they just good at approving time sheets? If you don’t have the solutions, we can help you find them.

Because, here at V.A. Brown Consulting, we can give your managers the one thing you don’t have a lot of – TIME. Through our personalized coaching, group workshops and on-site seminars, we will take the time to make sure they have the skills and abilities they need to put you on the road to great leadership.
