Management Training this way?
Managers are often promoted into the role due to their technical knowledge or long tenure, with little thought given to the development of their management skills. Interestingly, although 64% of small business owners believe that a lack of skills impedes business growth, only 25% of businesses are investing in leadership training.
Setting the tone
Management training can enhance the professional image of your business because managers set the tone for your entire business. They’re the front line. Their experience and skills can mean the difference between having a motivated, loyal and productive workforce, and a full-on employee exodus.
Anyone seen my staff?
Good managers empower their team to be happier, more productive, more dedicated and more inclined to stay within your business. The opposite is also true… dysfunctional managers who lack soft skills can lead to workers feeling less enthusiastic, being less productive, and ultimately seeking alternative places to work.
Use it or Lose it
Management soft skills are perishable; they can be forgotten or become outdated. The solution to this is to offer a rolling programme of bite-sized updates to keep the training front of mind and the skills fresh.
Both new and experienced manages can enjoy significant benefits from management training. It’s a fantastic opportunity to develop crucial skills and an appreciation of how good managers can strike an effective balance between resource management and employee inspiration.
