A Lack Of Quality Management Training Costs You Time & Money

Why do so many new managers and emerging leaders fail within the first two years of being promoted? Study after study indicates the answer is a lack of quality training.

Leadership & Management Are Not the Same Skills

Most new leaders are promoted because of their technical expertise. But successful leadership requires a unique skill set. And too many new leaders and managers receive little, if any, quality management training to equip them with the necessary set of leadership skills.

“HR Magazine reports that companies investing $1,500 or more per employee per year on training average 24 percent higher profit margins than companies with lower yearly training investments.”

Here’s What a Failing Leader Costs You

Each time one of your leaders washes out, it costs you time and money. Yes, retention and productivity costs go up. But morale also goes down. Missed target and missed opportunity costs mount. Then start counting the costs for compliance, regulatory or other liable actions — like harassment or discrimination. And the potential costs get really BIG — really FAST.

Those companies and organizations focused on growth and profitability know this. The smart money is to invest in the people who will lead them! As a result, high performing leadership supported by high quality management training attracts and retains even more high caliber talent.
