WHY Should I develop my management training skills?
Why should you expend effort to develop your management skills?
After all, many people do not bother.
"WHY?" is an all important question.
We have four answers to the why question:
1. If you are in business, you are in the businesses of people.
People are your primary resource. People are your customers, suppliers, financiers and workers. To get the most from your business, you need to get the most from people. Our training is about getting the most from people.
2. In business, you cannot force people to do anything.
Because we live in a free market economy.
The key word here is free.
Only the army, police, customs and prison services are authorized to use force.
You, the business manager cannot use force.
Instead, you have to persuade, teach, and inspire people to give more.
But many people have not learned to persuade.
They try to force their ideas.
So they come across as "too pushy".
Communication skills training will improve your ability to persuade.
3. Today's economy requires that people continually learn new skills.
So there has to be somebody who can teach.
There will be occasions when you are the teacher, or manager.
You need to develop and train others to become more informed and skilful.
You are a lifelong mentor and manager.
But have you ever learned how to teach?
Most people have not thought about the best ways to develop others.
This site will help you to manager, train and inspire other people.
It is packed with interesting and practical techniques.
4. Everyone has their ups and downs, their strong and weak points.
It is easy to handle a person when they are feeling strong and working to their strengths.
But what about the opposite?
What will you do for the person who is feeling weak, and at their worst?
What are you going to do?
Occasionally, your role will be to inspire people through tough times.
Have you ever studied the techniques you will need?
What are you going to say?
How will you turn them around?
We can show you what to say
And what NOT to say.
So - Keep learning
Keep adding to your skills
Keep making progress
