Are “just good enough” managers good enough?

A brief RetailWire comment about whether retailers should fire their managers who are simply “good enough” but not any better. I raise a different question in my blog entry…can these managers be elevated from “Good to Great” (to borrow a cliche) with the right kind of leadership, training and best practices? I believe so:

The more relevant question — especially for a chain retailer with multiple locations — is whether the company’s training and policies are also “just good enough.” Are the management tools and professional development in place that might allow good managers to become better, in order to weed out the truly mediocre (or worse)? It’s a fair question, especially if your company is loaded with “just OK” performers.
