Leadership training programs need to be an ongoing part of your professional development offerings. No matter how long your managers have been with your organization, training needs to play a consistent role in their career plan.
By providing opportunities for professional development; you create a trickle-down effect that benefits the entire organization.
Training reinforces the good habits that leaders have and teaching them new skills. Look for programs that help leaders manage their time more effectively, learn to set realistic expectations for themselves and their team members and encourage feedback from their managers, peers, and subordinates.
