Ask yourself one simple question: “Is my organization better off with trained or untrained managers and supervisors?” It’s a no brainer. Trained managers are far better at navigating leadership and employment law challenges than those who rely solely on gut feel or emotion.

But there’s a problem. In most organizations formal leadership and management skills training just doesn’t happen. The culprit: time. HR people and upper level managers who are responsible for developing leadership talent often don’t have enough hours in the day to get it done. To make matters worse, staffs are lean these days and the people who need the training are equally pressed for time. As a result, professional development gets pushed to the bottom of everyone’s priority list.

The good news is that we’re at a tipping point in the history of workplace learning. Three critical trends are emerging that will make the goal of a well-trained management team a reality for even the busiest HR people and executives.

This 25-minute program will discuss those trends in details and offer solutions to help you put them to work in your organization.
