Paving the Way: Creating and Implementing Successful Management Training

Training the managers and future managers within an organization can often be one of the most pivotal parts of a training and development program.

Managers will be the decision makers and the leaders within a company, and while some of their abilities may include inherent qualities, in many ways they also need to be trained and developed for success.

Unfortunately, management training programs often fall short, particularly when they’re delivered in the traditional classroom format.

When creating management training it’s important to remember some key things.Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 2.07.30 PM

  1. Your entire organization needs to be built around a culture that embraces the idea of learning. In all-too-many companies, training and development are seen as unnecessary and hassles. It becomes the responsibility of company leaders to change this and provide management training that’s engaging and feels relevant and exciting. Management training should be a reward rather than a punishment and this can be achieved by changing the way your entire organization frames the concept and also by offering better methods of learning, such as the use of a learning management system.
  2. Make management training easy and accessible for your future leaders. Your employees probably already have quite a bit on their plate and training just adds to their workload. With that in mind, make it easy for them. With e-Learning you can provide training that’s efficient and can be accessed on a variety of devices so management training doesn’t have to mean sitting in a classroom for days or even weeks.
  3. Management training should not just include the technical elements that will be needed on the job—it should also include a concept of what your company embodies. This is something that’s frequently left out of manager training—through the training process let your employers know what your mission statement is, what your corporate goals are and how they can fit into that overall image and future plan. This is a great way to build manager loyalty and retain your best employees.
  4. Hold your employees accountable for their manager training. Show them that training is important by measuring their successes and failures and providing them with constructive feedback throughout the process. eLeaP makes this easy for employers by offering a robust suite of reporting and tracking tools that automate the process and give you a birds-eye view of how your employees are performing in terms of management training.
  5. It should be interesting. With eLeaP you can design your own customized training that’s not only branded to your business but that also has a variety of engaging and interesting multimedia elements.
