Why Good Managers Are So Rare

Why Good Managers Are So Rare | Creative Products |

Gallup has found that one of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they name manager. Yet our analysis suggests that they usually get it wrong. In fact, Gallup finds that companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82% of the time.


Bad managers cost businesses billions of dollars each year, and having too many of them can bring down a company. The only defense against this massive problem is a good offense, because when companies get these decisions wrong, nothing fixes it. Businesses that get it right, however, and hire managers based on talent will thrive and gain a significant competitive advantage.

Companies need to commit when promoting someone to a management position to provide the training and mentoring necessary. This approach provides a great return on investment!!

Wonderful article from HBR, definitively worthing the few minutes needed for free registration ;)

Here is a short extract:

"If great managers seem scarce, it’s because the talent required to be one is rare. Gallup finds that great managers have the following talents:

  • They motivate every single employee to take action and engage them with a compelling mission and vision.
  • They have the assertiveness to drive outcomes and the ability to overcome adversity and resistance.
  • They create a culture of clear accountability.
  • They build relationships that create trust, open dialogue, and full transparency.
  • They make decisions that are based on productivity, not politics."

I believe I may have posted another 3d printed multicopter in the past, but this thing is the real deal. A 17 year old college kid printed this out. He designed it in Solidworks. It is printed with ABS on a Stratasys Dimension 3D Printer. Yes that's a real deal professional printer.

The Multicopter can fly for up to 30 minutes at a time, up to 3 miles away and is fully autonomous. It also feature a video camera which can transfer back a live feed during flight It took him 4 months to
