Inadequate leadership among frontline managers has been found to be detrimental to employee engagement, according to a new study. Here's what L&D professionals can learn from it.

    That is so true! We can do the best job we can, but we can only do so much as L&D professionals. It's so important to get the competencies of line managers up to scratch.

    Interesting that only 12% of participants believe that their organisations are providing sufficient tools and training to develop frontline managers as leaders - companies should obviously be giving their L&D departments more funding so that we can get them all trained-up.

    One of the most important things for any business is having leaders who 'walk the talk'. As the evidence shows, it can really motivate employees.
