The Great Manager Awards

The Great Manager Awards aims to identify, assess, recognize and benchmark Great Managers in the corporate sector. By bringing nominees together onto a level playing field, the adjudicators will assess their management style, focus on results, execution, people management and leadership integrity to recognize the best, and provide guidance for development.

The aim is to find out what makes a Great Manager great, how an organization’s managers stack up against industry peers, what they can learn from peer group companies and how to nurture more great managers leading to the development of a leadership eco-system in the organization. Nominees will be assessed for managerial effectiveness on a global research-based model known as R-OPTI. The focus will be on results, execution, people, team, organizations and leadership integrity with the survey and results audited by an esteemed advisory panel and faculty. Organizations and managers can benchmark best practices, receive recommendations for improvement of leadership effectiveness, and identify key competencies of managerial talent.
