Management Training: Are You Satisfied With The Results?
If you're not satisfied with the results of your management training programs , maybe its because you handle training as a one shot event rather than a process of developing your people to be better managers.
Learn ways to get the biggest bang from your training dollars.
If you're not satisfied with the results of your management training programs, maybe its because you handle training as a one shot event rather than a process of developing your people to be better managers.
One of the common misconceptions is that a manager can take a course and voila he is now skilled in communicating with others, or managing his time or delegating work.
Rome wasn't built in a day.
Neither will people change in one day.
Particularly many leadership competencies require several courses and ongoing feedback and reinforcement.
Here is how you can get the biggest bang from your training dollars:
Make sure training is just in time.
Provide training when people need it not when its on a schedule.
If people know they will immediately be able to use the new skills or information, they'll be more motivated to learn.
Otherwise they'll see it as a waste of time.
Create performance tools.
These are inexpensive, user friendly aids - laminated cards or posters or booklets - that will keep key points fresh in peoples mind.
Tips for Improving Performance are short sessions planned several weeks after the training.
Here people exchange what working, what not and how to make it work better. In essence, they are teaching and coaching each other.
Make sure training is more than a checklist of courses but rather an effective method of improving performance.
