Willingness to change oneself for the good is one of the skills that helps professionals adapt, learn and grow with the change in the environment around them. Given the importance of this skill, it is heartening to see that 53% of entry level graduates, assessed by GeNeX, possess high levels of this skill. This statistic is encouraging because it is this stream of entry level professionals who need to be the most adaptable to learning. If these professionals keep their heart and mind open to change, they will be able to not only grow quickly themselves but they will also propel growth for the entire organization.
Contrary to entry level graduates scores, 32% of middle managers exhibited high levels of this skill. According to GeNeX research, this typically happens because Middle managers are in their mid-30s to 40s and are not as open to change. They have time-constraining, risk-averse obligations including time and financial commitments. They tend to envy the enthusiasm of the younger workers they once used to be but are critical of the younger generations naiveté. Middle Managers also tend to look forward longingly at the prestige and rewards of senior executives but are critical of the inflexibility and irrationality of senior management. In the process, a significant chunk of Middle Managers neither want to move backward or forward and become stuck in their existing roles.
