There’s one thing that not just managers, but all workers fear looking like at work
60% of employees say the ability to do what they do best in a role at work is “very important” to them according to Gallup surveys. Our research at Cortex would support the fact that people are highly engaged when they know what is expected of them and are given the tools, resources, support, and training for them to perform optimally at what is asked of them.

Constant change can make this fear worse. Change is stressful at work because you can be asked to perform tasks or be held accountable for things that you don’t feel you have a high degree of competence in. The more changes, the harder it is to keep up with all of them and remain current as far as the skill sets necessary to perform them.

Why Managers Don’t Speak Up About What They Aren’t Good At
If a manager’s job description isn’t
I don’t say anything to you when I start running into issues because I fear that you will think I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m afraid that if you lose trust in my abilities that I will get demoted and that, of course, would prove to everyone else I didn’t know what I was doing. My pay will probably go down or the worst could happen, I would be fired. The incentive for me to “fake it until I make it” is high and the risk could be equally as high for sharing that I may not have the skills necessary to the job I am being paid to do.
The Sink or Swim Management Training Method
To speed up transition and onboarding periods for new managers, some approach it with a “sink or swim” management training approach. This may have worked for some positions and departments in the past. You could perhaps throw a manager into a position without any soft skills training because the unemployment rate was high and the people they were managing may not have been able to get another job. Now that unemployment is hovering at or below 4% nationally, a bad manager starts to show up in low retention rates. This can begin to negatively effect already difficult recruitment efforts. In fact, the diagnosis within the organization becomes “we just can’t get qualified applicants anymore or keep the employees we have”. What is also common is, “We can’t replace Joe, we don’t have anyone else to take his place as the manager of that department”.
