Managing other people can be extremely difficult, and too often, employees are placed in management roles without the proper training. At Breakthrough CTC, one of our passions is helping employees become more effective through leadership training.
Why is Leadership Training Important?
There are a whole host of reasons why leadership training is essential to the overall success of your company, a few of which include:
- Retain Your Employees – Hiring and training new employees is extremely important. Studies show that many employees leave their job not because they dislike the company but because they don’t enjoy working with their managers. Leadership training helps to promote understanding and responsiveness within managers to help employees enjoy their work and reduce job turnover.
- Boost Productivity – Employees who respect their management team will work harder. Having consistent and compassionate leadership helps employees boost productivity because they genuinely appreciate who they’re working for.
- Create a Path for Promotion – Some of your best employees want to have a clear path for growth within your company. Leadership training helps you lay out a set of processes that can take someone from an entry-level hire to a full-fledged manager.
Key Attributes of a Successful Manager
Below are a few traits that are necessary to become a great manager:
- Empathy – It’s essential that managers exhibit empathy with their employees. Everyone has good days and bad days, and we’re all dealing with our inner struggles. The workplace runs more smoothly when managers know how to support those they supervise.
- Transparency – Effective managers should set clear expectations for their employees and communicate regularly to ensure everyone is on the same page. Often, clear communication is half the battle.
- Emotional Intelligence – Being a good manager requires wearing many different hats. One moment you may be resolving conflict, and the next you may be analyzing complex reports to track profitability and hold people accountable. Managers need always to be adaptable to the emotional needs of their employees.
