Before beginning any kind of employee or for that matter management leadership training process it’s important to determine exactly where you want to be at the conclusion of the program.
If you have investigated the various offerings available to your organization you know that management leadership training comes in various forms from outside experts to internal trainers to public seminars to peer-to-peer mastermind groups.
Which one or combination of solutions is best for you can more easily be determined when you know where you want the process to lead you.
In other words defining in advance what a successful result will be for your organization and its members.
Most business owners report that success is knowing their company’s values and its goals and then doing business in alignment with them.
If you, as the business owner, expect successful results for your people at the end of their management leadership training – you must first be able to identify your core values and articulate them to the trainers so their efforts will point your employees in the direction of those values.
You organization’s purpose and its core values should be integrated into any management leadership training
program so that the training reinforces them and they support the training, in an “everything leads to everything else” scenario.
This is not meant to be cheer leading – rather it is to help imbed the core values in a way that causes managers and leaders to act in accordance with those core values naturally, reflexively. This is what builds the “way” that everyone in the organization addresses every issue.
Your organization’s values were not built in upon incorporation. You did not receive them as part of the Inc. package you received from your lawyer. When the company started it had no values of its own, only those of the original owners.
Those values were instilled in them by their parents, mentors, teachers, peers, and everyone who cam in contact with them. Every day they, and now you, choose to accept or reject values from different sources. It is a never ending refining of who you are and who your people are as individuals and as an organization.
A successful management leadership training program helps people at every level in the organization quickly react with “that’s not like us” or “that’s the way we do things here” automatically. These internal values are combined seamlessly with the organization’s external persona or brand to insure people that when they do business with your company they can absolutely count on being treated in a certain way.
While it might not be in the trainer’s brochure of benefits or on the DVD or online management leadership training web site, management leadership training crystallizes the internal and external values of everyone from the Board room to the loading dock.
Whatever skills training employees receive, in the long run it will be clear, are a bonus. How they see themselves as leaders and managers and how they are on board with the company’s mission is where the real lasting value is.
The training will help your employees see more clearly where the company is going so they can become a permanent part of the solution for themselves, their contemporaries, and all those who follow them.
Management leadership training will help your employees get more of what is important to them and help your organization become more and more profitable in the process.
Since the beginning of time, leadership development has meant many different ways to encourage followers. Today’s leaders know that being a leader means to inspire others to follow them, during good times and bad.
