Promoting Your Staff Effectively
“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!” – Richard Branson. Hope you don’t recommend your pilots do that, Rich. This course examines what’s called ‘The Peter Principle’. It’s a concept that explains the phenomenon of being promoted to the point of incompetence. A good follower doesn’t necessarily make a good leader, that kind of thing. It looks at the statistics behind this and other promotion issues, and will give you an idea of what you can do to avoid the pitfalls.
Covered in this course:
- Some context around promotion problems
- Investigating the Peter Principle
- How to promote properly
