The BlueShor Manager Accelerator

The Problem

Rapidly scaling manager capabilities is an unsolved pain point for almost all fast-growth companies.  

50% of new managers fail or flail

57% learned managerial skills through trial and error, as did their own managers.  63% report feeling ineffective after 1 year in the role

Promotions are often based on individual contributor skills

Good IC skills are necessary but not sufficient.  However, to date, there is no good way to assess other capabilities

The cost of poor managers is high

Managers account for 70% of the variation in employee experience. Cost of turnover is ~20-50% of salary, with lost productivity during the 6-9 month hiring and ramp-up cycle

Existing solutions are not designed for fast-growth companies

In person programs are time intensive and expensive.  One-size-fit-all approaches lack tailoring to the individual

It's All About the Individual

Behavior change is hard.  Neuroscience confirms it: adults learn best when change is relevant and important to achieving their goals.  The proprietary BlueShor Manager Capability Assessment helps people know where they stand today and where they need to develop to become a more effective manager
