Have you ever heard the saying that most people are promoted to their level of incompetence? It’s harsh, but true.
It happens in large companies, but is even more normal in small businesses. Someone does their job well, so they get promoted to a management position, managing one or more team members. It seems logical, and often both the manager and the person being promoted think it’s a fantastic move. But in reality it spells danger and can actually turn out to be quite cruel. Being good at doing a job is absolutely not qualification for managing a team.
What should ideally happen is that team members who show promise as future managers are provided some training and given appropriate insights into what will be involved; What does it take to be a good manager? What knowledge and skills are required? Only after someone has been trained should they be given the management role.
