Managers are the backbone of a business or organisation; they need to respond quickly and efficiently to changes and events, they need to make critical decisions in a timely manner and with impartiality, and they need to be able to lead and develop employees into a productive workforce. But few managers enter their roles with the skill set needed to fulfil these duties which is why managers undergo management development training.
Management training and development is an investment not only in the individual manager, but also in their employees and the business as a whole. As a result any management focused training and development course needs to take into account the individual intricacies of each business, which isn’t reflected in standard off the peg management development training. The trouble with standardised management training courses is that they are developed with a “one size fits all” attitude and don’t necessarily develop the skills which individual managers are lacking. Bespoke management training courses are tailored specifically for the individual manager and their organisation. When they are creating bespoke training courses, management training providers consider the business objectives of the organisation and the development needs of the manger concerned. Bespoke courses are designed and delivered in a way which completely fits a manager and its organisation, providing added value in ongoing coaching and support.
Public management training courses which are attended by numerous individuals can be beneficial to long term management development and training plans. The training is generally more basic and can be a good way for new or inexperienced managers to learn the fundamentals of good management practice. Public training courses are also a great way for new and inexperienced mangers to meet peers of similar abilities which can lead to knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer coaching.
General management training courses and programmes aim to develop and increase skill shortages in areas such as time management, people management, negotiation and influencing skills. Bespoke management development training courses go a step further and offer intensive development in any interpersonal areas which managers may be lacking. A tailored management development training course also creates new and effective ways for managers to carry on with their development outside of the training room. Such techniques which many UK management training and development providers offer include:
Effective management training and development courses don’t just create managers; they develop them and encourage individuals and organisations to take ownership of their own development.
