No. 1 cause of managerial failure may not be what you think

Quick: When managers fail, what’s the main reason?

Maybe you answered: “Not delivering the results their superiors expect.” That would be logical. But it would also be wrong, according to a new survey by Right Management, part of ManpowerGroup.

Some 40% of the 1,400 CEOs and HR executives surveyed said an inability to build relationships and a team environment was the main cause of managerial failure. Mismatches with corporate culture were cited by 26%, with only 11% pointing to failures to deliver acceptable results.

Teams get results
Of course, nobody’s saying managers shouldn’t care about results.

Rather, the message is this: As a manager, the way to get results is through your team. Build a strong team and the results will follow. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can drive results by yourself.
