Training for new managers

Training for new managers is important, because many new managers are promoted into their new role, mostly by virtue of their superior technical knowledge, or by the fact that they have been there, in your organisation, for such a long time. Since they know the systems, they know the customers, they know the products and the services, the best, then they are the best choice for the role of new manager.

But now the new managers are in place, they may need to deal with difficult management issues for which they are not fully prepared.

They need to know:

1. How to improve their delegation skills

Meaning: how to set realistic goals and entrust these goals to individuals within the team.

2. How to improve their communication skills

So that they are able to communicate more effectively, both in the written and in the spoken form.

3. How to improve their planning skills

So that large tasks are broken down into smaller subordinate tasks, put into the correct order and implemented in the correct manner, at the correct time, to the correct standard.

4. How to improve their decision making skills

So that the new manager makes good decisions based upon a logical evaluation of all the facts, as opposed to guessing or flipping a coin.

5. How to improve their ability to correct poor performance

How to improve their ability to correct poor performance, or poor behaviour, or a conflict within the team. How to handle difficult people, in such a way that the person amends his or her behaviour without too much drama; so that the normal functioning of the team is quickly restored: As opposed to; allowing poor behaviour or conflict situations to escalate until there is a complete meltdown in team performance.

6. How to improve their own self management

Meaning: How the new manager can create and sustain their own self-confidence, their own self-motivation, their own sense of self discipline, in order that they can keep their head on straight, when things are tough, or when others are losing their cool.

The manager needs to be able to show some leadership qualities, too, and therefore, needs to be able to maintain his own self-control and mental stability.

7. How to inspire the others in the team

The new manager needs to know how to use positive motivators in order to get the maximum cooperative effort from the other members of the team.
The positive motivators are the social motivators, such as: Praise, appreciation and rewards.
Too many managers use negative motivators, such as anger, threats, punishments and sanctions, as a means of trying to motivate the team.

Negative motivators do work; but only for a short time. After that short time, the negative motivators trigger an equal and opposite reaction, in the minds of the listeners, and the team cohesion falls apart, and the team's cooperative spirit fails, and the performance of the team drops like a stone.

So new managers need to know about how to motivate the team using positive methods not negative methods.

New Manager training Summary:

New managers need to deal with management issues for which some of them are not prepared.
They may need special training to help their confidence and effectiveness in the role of new manager.

They need to know:

  • How to improve their delegation skills.
  • How to improve their communication skills
  • How to improve their planning skills.
  • How to improve their decision making skills.
  • How to improve their ability to correct poor performance, or poor behaviour, or conflict within the team.
  • How to improve their own self-management.
  • How to inspire the others in the team: How to motivate the team using positive methods not negative methods.
