Being a first-time manager is not easy and often does not come with the necessary training. 68% of the UK's managers are accidental, having performed extraordinarily well within their role; these managers are thrust into management positions without the necessary skills needed to effectively lead their teams into the future. According to a CMI survey in 2017, this management skills gap cost the UK economy £84 billion a year.
We also find that some senior/experienced managers lack the right skills to lead effectively from the front.
