You have identified leaders in your organization who are ready to move to the next level of their professional journey.
They are now in a position where building relationships, influencing, engaging and activating others is critical to their success.
Leadership and quality management skills are learned, and though some may seem to have a more natural inclination towards them, these skills are not necessarily intrinsic, and often require dedicated learning and training to improve and increase those abilities and behaviors. Building great leaders is an investment worth making.
Leadership is a Skill
When leaders communicate powerfully they provide insight where there is confusion; they bolster confidence when there is doubt; they clarify the path where there is no direction and they ignite passion and inspire others to action. When leaders communicate well they go beyond information sharing to creating meaning with employees, customers and the public at large.
The irony of leadership roles and promotion is that many times, leadership roles are filled by employees who did a good job in their non-management job. But simply a promotion doesn’t a leader make. Just because the employee did a good job and demonstrated competence in their role as part of the team doesn’t mean they’re automatically equipped to lead the team.
It’s important to remember that all managers struggle to get their feet under them at first. Giving them a leg up by providing them sufficient training to establish a solid foundation for their new role will help immeasurably to get good results from them. When new and emerging managers are trained in management and leadership there is an immediately observable increase in personal performance and confidence, which is felt within the team and across the organization.
Leadership Training Fosters A Better Workplace
When your team leaders have had professional training in leadership development skills, the difference it makes to your organization is felt and seen at every level. Employees are more engaged and experience and elevated morale and desire to be a part of the company, resulting in good employee retention, which in turn reduces repeat hiring and training costs.
Employees who work under strong leadership feel like they are important and valued, and that every job matters, including theirs. When people feel like the work they do matters, they do better work, resulting in increased productivity, profit, and general workplace satisfaction.
In an organization with highly trained leaders, the corporate culture isn’t a thing that has to be forced, rather it develops organically and authentically. Communication is open, welcomed, and effective. Trained leaders know how to cultivate an atmosphere and culture where all the employees understands the vision and goals of the company and the important role they play in it, including how to actively help improve it.
People entering leadership positions can go much further, much faster, when invested with proper training for leadership development and taught the practical techniques for being the best leaders they can be.
