First of all we focus on the results of the survey. This survey was made using 1100 managers currently working. This surveyreveals that the head managers over-estimate their skills. They consider themselves as “good at their job”, specially in the planning, communication and adaptability fields. They know and managevery well the work standards, planning and organisation. They would like to improve in delegation, commitment and group work integration. Environment is not an important aspect, managers are notobjective when it comes to manage. Besides when real problems appear they don’t take into account their weakness and over-estimate their skills and abilities.
Now let’s move on to the second part:the survey statistics results.
In the first hand, results show that 62% of managers do a good job everyday against 58% who are good to organise schedules and 53% for decision making.
On theother hand, 50% of managers think they are good in communicating with others, technically and professionally talking. Moreover, they know to take initiatives at around 46%. The results are lessinteresting in coaching with 36% against 33%, and 32% for the gaining commitment and delegating.
To conclude we can say that managers over-estimate themselves because they are surrounded by employeeswho flatter them and make them feel very good with the work they do. However 26% have doubts about their skills, moreover 15% are not very interested in their work after only one year of activity.
