8 key steps for successful management training
(page 2 of 2)
The biggest tip of all? Ask your management team what they’d like to learn about! I did a quick survey of my management team and asked each of them to identify three to five topics within their management responsibilities where they feel additional training could be useful. We dedicate half of our monthly management meeting to training (approximately 45 minutes per month). I take one topic a month, build a simple training program around the topic, and share it with the team at our monthly meeting. If the topic is more complicated, I have found it best to break it into sections and spread the training out over several months.
This will take time and effort. I’ve read many articles and blogs about how employees leave managers, not jobs. Take this opportunity to do something about it and make the investment in solid management for your company.
