Simply put, managers will make a much greater contribution to their organizations if they fully transition into their managerial roles.  Our research reveals that most managers are stuck somewhere between the individual contributor and manager roles – whether they are newly promoted or have been managers for 5, 10, 15, or even 20 years. 

Likewise, professional employees will make greater contributions, becoming more engaged in their work, if they are properly challenged. Accelerating manager Transitions and increasing employee Engagement are what ConceptReserve focuses on – creating higher levels of contribution for your organization.
