A CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) HR Outlook survey that polled human resource professionals found that nearly 50 percent of polled human resource personnel do not think senior business leaders have the necessary "performance management" skills. Nearly 44 percent of human resource professionals felt the same types of leaders lacked "people management" skills.
Business leaders were rated higher for technical, financial and operational management skills.
Two reasons given for the lack of skills are a lack of training and lack of ongoing tailored support. "Leaders Lack Professional Skills," www.theglobalrecruiter.com (2017).
