Tom Davenport, author Manager Redefined: The Competitive Advantage in the Middle of your Organization
Competing successfully today requires more than just charismatic leadership at the top of the organization. Competitive success also requires a population of supervisors and managers who can build productive teams, help people develop their skills and knowledge, create a work environment rich in both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards and manage complex and difficult change. More than this, the best managers build trusting relationships with employees through authentic behavior.
In this session, Tom Davenport, Senior Consultant with Towers Watson and author of Manager Redefined, will provide insights into how organizations can improve the ability of middle managers to contribute to creating and sustaining a competitive advantage for their companies. Tom will talk about the significance of these factors and discuss how organizations can build a population of managers who make a material contribution to organizational success. Attendees will have the opportunity to:
· Learn about the most powerful ways manager performance contributes to achieving and sustaining competitive advantage
· Work through the manager performance model that derives from Towers Watson's global research and was laid out in Manager Redefined
· Identify the specific, practical actions an organization can take to upgrade the performance of individual managers and of the broader manager population.
