Tailored Management Training
Our management training programs can be tailored as in-house programs to address specific issues within your company.
We figure that most people who end up managing others hadn't planned to do so and can benefit from management training.
Surveys verify that managers tend to fall into the role rather than choosing it as a career option.
It tends to go like this: someone applies for a job that looks very interesting; they interview well, get the job and begin their new working life.
This can apply to all professions: software developers to secretaries to telesales to marketeers.
After a year or two (or in some cases less) management notices how good someone is at what they do and they decide to promote that person into a management role.
They believe that if they are good at their current job, they'll surely be good at managing others to do the same thing.
Or rather, wrong sometimes.
Sometimes, what happens is that when getting promoted, the skills that were valued in their previous role become of secondary importance to management skills the person doesn't have.
It isn't exactly the Peter Principle where people are promoted to their level of incompetence.
More, it's like the Oh-Gosh,-What-Do-I-Do-Now? Principle, where people are promoted because of their competency but aren't then given the training and backing they need to do the job well.
We actually think it's quite bizarre really that something so important for organisations as the management of their people is left to chance.
The jump from being managed to managing can be significant and yet time and again, good people fail in management roles because they haven't got the basic skills that would see them succeed (and succeed well) as managers.
One of these recent surveys said that half of UK workers who leave their jobs (voluntarily as opposed to being made redundant) do so because of bad managers.
And it is not surprising that the UK spends less money on management training than our global competitors. Sad, but not surprising.
After all this gloomy news, the really, really good news is that our training for managers is accessible, straight-forward and when run well, lots of fun!
