Profiles International Identifies Eight Signs of Incompetent Managers

Austin, TX, Oct. 27, 2009 -– Profiles International, a global leader in employment evaluation and human resource management assessment tools, has released a report identifying eight signs of incompetent managers. Along with the signs of managerial incompetence, the report also offers practical remedies for management training to help managers achieve greater success. Highlighting information gleaned from its research into America’s Most Productive Companies, this report emphasizes that the most productive companies are more proactive than their peers when it comes to identifying and developing effective management.

“Managers have to know as much as possible about their team members if they hope to be successful,” said Jim Sirbasku, co-founder and CEO of Profiles International. “If they don’t have adequate information, they’ll never be able to coach their team members to success, even if they have great leadership skills. The key is finding out as soon as possible whether or not management training can turn these employees into successful managers.”

The eight signs of incompetent managers included in this report are poor communication skills, weak leadership capabilities, inability or unwillingness to adapt to change, poor relationship-building skills, ineffective task management, insufficient production, insufficient ability to develop others, and being neglectful of personal development.

“The good news is that some of these signs can be remedied through proper manager training and development,” said Dario Priolo, Managing Director of the Profiles International Research Institute. “This report can help business leaders decide whether to invest time and effort into training ineffective managers or whether to redeploy those managers elsewhere in the company.”
