Ongoing Leadership Training is Critical for ALL Employees

What is Leadership Training?

Leadership training helps all employees develop skills, upskill, and reskill to be better leaders; leaders who represent your team, your organization, your clients, and your market. It is also identifies high-potential employees and equip them with the tools they need to manage teams…effectively; as good employees are not always good managers… and good managers are not always good leaders. Training improves both soft and hard skills. A leadership training program will equip individuals with the knowledge, skills, tools, and goals to accelerate the organizations, and those around them, as a competitive advantage in the market.

Why Leadership Training Is Critical

Everyone in an organization is a leader in one way or another.  Are they armed with the skills to meet expectations or exceed expectations?  The most successful organizations in the world invest, and reinvest, in employee skill development.  Leaders must grow and evolve in order to effectively advance their projects, teams, organizations, and clients. Leadership is a critical part of business success across all industries. Ideally, every teammate on a team would be armed with the skills and knowledge to be or become a great leader; if not, there are many risks both internally and externally to the organization.

Measurable outcomes associated with leadership training include:

  • Increased revenue via attracting and retaining talent (it takes an average of 8-12 weeks to fully replace an employee, which can add up to a 25% loss of revenue brought in by that employee).
  • Reduced employee onboarding costs (external hires demand 18%-20% more than internal hires).
  • Better preparedness and business continuity
  • Improved strategic planning, data-driven execution and positive team collaboration
  • Introduction of new technology skills and building upon existing skills
  • Fortified risk management via broadened knowledge of potential cybersecurity threats and how to avoid them

Risks of Not Including Leadership Training in Your Development Strategy

Leaders that are not making use of the full scope of new innovative leadership best practices, technologies, and perspectives are putting themselves, teammates, organizations, and clients at risk. Leadership training is no longer a “want” but a “need”.,. The U.S. is on track to lose $430 billion annually due to low talent retention rates by 2030. Talented individuals are more likely to put their efforts behind modern, ahead-of-the-curve organizations lead by adaptable, skilled leaders. Skill development is a critical component of becoming and staying a resilient leader. That is why investing in ongoing leadership training is necessary to grow new leaders and solidify company loyalty.  If every employee does not have access to a leadership learning journey, ask yourself why.

Who Needs Leadership Training?

Every employee within a business needs leadership training. The skills that are developed via leadership training courses are critical for all members of a competitive team. For example, a customer service representative who reports to other managerial staff needs to be able to work within a team competently and efficiently while simultaneously growing to potentially step into a managerial role. They also need training to help them make more informed decisions on behalf of the business. A customer service manager above the representative needs tools and education towards growing from manager to leader, managing successful meetings, improving communication skills within a supervisory role, and growing as a leader with the awareness of culture and diversity that enfranchises a team.

Leadership Training Courses Are For:

  • Stronger Employees and Leaders – All employees within an organization must constantly focus on growing as leaders. Leadership training courses focus on the transition from managers to leaders, embracing change, developing culturally-competent leaders, and team efficiency. These skills are vital to the success of a business and should be honed in all employees throughout the ranks in order to build a strong team.
  • Small, Medium, and Large Businesses – Every organization, regardless of size, needs a team of trained leaders and should invest in ongoing education to keep skills sharp.
