Have you experienced this scenario?
"Most of our leaders came up through the ranks. They've helped our business grow and we really depend on them, but now they're in the position where they need to be the leaders of others -- and they're just not prepared for it. So we keep sending them off to management training and they come back energized, but we still don’t see any results. All this training seems like a waste of time and money.”
If you have experienced this scenario or answered no to any of the questions about your manager, here is the trick.
Take the time to first chart a path to ensure that you will actually get the results of where you want to go. As with any other area of your business, you have to make an overall plan for developing your leaders and start with the most important outcome.
Not all managers need the same thing when it comes to people skills. Higher level managers often require a different experience then front line supervisors. Also, certain individuals or teams may have unique needs, and this often means not shoving them into one group meeting after another.
