Bosses fail to impress their staff, says poll

By Alan Jones

Almost half of managers believe their own bosses are ineffective, according to a study into the business benefits of leadership.

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) said a survey of 4,500 managers showed that 43% described their own line manager as ineffective.

Managers in high-performing organisations were more likely to praise their boss, while their firms spent more on management and leadership development.

The CMI said too few employers were investing enough in management and leadership.

Acting chief executive Christopher Kinsella said: "The bad news is that a culture of poor management continues to damage UK firms. But the good news is that organisations who have got things right stand a much greater chance of being high performing.

"By investing in management development wisely, you can make a real, measurable difference."
