EMEA - People Science Great Debate: Should a manager be your everything?

We all know people leaders play a pivotal role in shaping the employee experience, but how do we enable leaders – especially those who manage other leaders – to provide the best support? While there has always been a focus on essential people management skills (e.g. delegation, project management), supporting employee wellbeing continues to fall to the manager.

So what role – and management style – should a leader pursue? In this debate, we’ll explore the pros and cons of “traditional management” (i.e. business-only management) compared to “new age management” (i.e. whole-person management) and give you the tools to determine what style will best support your organization’s success.
