Why Training Matters

Even if you have an all-star team, continuous education and growth opportunities are essential when it comes to building your business. The truth is leadership, especially in modern circumstances, is often far less intuitive than we’d like to admit. With generational shifts entering the workforce, changing office models, and an uncertain market that can often leave all of us on our toes. Expecting those that are newer to senior roles to know how to lead flawlessly is a recipe for disaster. Coaching is a valuable asset that allows everyone to step forward with confidence and guide fellow team members toward the end goal with ease.

Proactivity is King

While you’re bound to miss a few training opportunities here and there (it happens to the best of us!), taking a proactive approach is essential to maximizing the benefit you’ll get out of your current and future leaders. If you spot employees with serious potential, begin them on the path to management or higher responsibility early, equipping them with the skills they need along the way.

You can do this by fostering peer-to-peer leadership and granting hands-on training through workshops and coaching, all of which give practical knowledge that your team can carry forward into new, advanced roles down the line. It’s also worth mentioning that having a visibly proactive approach is a great sign for other employees, as it gives them the confidence that their strengths will be acknowledged and they will be given the opportunity to advance in your organization.

Let Them Take the Reigns (With a Safety Net)

Once you’ve begun investing in a team member, how do you take their newfound skills from theoretical to tangible? If you want to make the most of your coaching and training efforts, it’s essential to let your staff practice in real-time and to give them opportunities to learn along the way. Giving additional responsibilities, asking for higher-level insights, and offloading certain delegation needs are all great ways to see how your leaders-in-training have evolved, and help you steer the ship back on course in case of any missteps.

The one caveat here is that you must do so with care and purpose, and ideally with a consistent long-term plan in place. Overburdening new leaders or those that are actively pushing to reach higher levels within the company or organization can have the opposite effect than intended and leave everyone feeling frustrated and disenchanted.

Lead With Clear Communication

Communication is the bedrock of any strong team, and in order to help your leaders excel, you need to make sure they not only know how to communicate clearly, but that you clearly communicate your expectations and needs with them. Partnering with an executive coaching consultant like Pivot can help align everyone and make sure that you have the tools you need to reach a common understanding moving forward.
