Training Tuesday Part 2
Benefits of Training – For Managers of Teams
Less Supervision needed!
Managers and Leaders often talk to me about not having enough time in a day to do their job and manage their team, I always ask the managers to think about how well they utilise the skills within their team to support them. Management/leadership is not one way, people/individuals should learn to manage up/down and sideways including delegation of tasks. If the skills are not in place this is where training and mentoring can help.
If your employees are given quality training/support, the responsibility of supervision and leadership is lessened. Training does not and will not eliminate the need for supervision and leadership, but it reduces the need for detailed and constant supervision, this then in time gives the managers/leaders some time back to be able to focus on bigger picture and building the business.
- You choose what new skills your workforce gains, targeting skills to meet the needs of your operation for now and in the future
- Demonstrates to your workforce that you value them enough to invest in them, improving loyalty and staff retention. In turn, retention is a saving to you.
“Never stop learning because life never stops teaching”
Training comes in many forms all of which can help with job satisfaction, it can be having a mentor to work alongside you, it could also be on the job coaching, it can also be support from your manager and team. Ultimately though, personal development is also your responsibility. Not all businesses have dedicated training programmes so over the coming weeks I hope to give you an insight into what can be achieved and if you wish to hear more you can connect with me through LinkedIN and you can also follow my new LinkedIN page by clicking these links.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you!
