    There are four distinct types of managers. One performs much worse than the rest, and one performs far better. Which type are you? Based on a first-of-its-kind, wide-ranging global study of over 9,000 people, analysts at the global research and advisory firm Gartner were able to classify all managers into one of four types:   •  Teacher managers, who develop employees' skills based on their own expertise and direct their development along a similar track to their own.   •  Cheerleader managers, who give positive feedback while taking a general hands-off approach to employee development.   •  Always-on...read more

    Brought to you by Penguin. The best managers work smarter, not harder After conducting a unique global study of over 9,000 people, analysts at the world-leading sales research firm Gartner identified four distinct types of manager. Incredibly, they found one type consistently performs far better than the rest, and it wasn't the one they were expecting.
