Good leadership is a key ingredient to an organisation’s success. Many companies promote employees into leadership positions based on their technical expertise, however, it takes more than technical knowledge to make a successful leader. The good news is that effective leaders can be developed. Organisational leadership training can help to support leaders by catalysing the development of essential leadership skills.
Here are five different ways that leadership training can benefit your organisation:
Boosts employee engagement and motivation
Motivated and engaged employees are more productive and efficient. Leadership training can help boost an individual’s self-awareness as well as their awareness of others. Understanding more about human behaviours and motivators can help leaders successfully engage with their team, adapt their approach where necessary and utilise team members’ strengths, leading to happier and more motivated team members.
Improves performance and productivity
It is often noted that happy workers are hard workers. Successful leaders who can engage and motivate their team often have teams that are more satisfied, productive and innovative which leads greater performance and profitability within the business.
Studies show that the number one reason people leave an organisation, is because of their Manager. Ensuring the effectiveness of your leaders through ongoing training and development is crucial to ensure employees remain committed to their roles and the organisation.
Attract and retain high-quality leaders
Often individuals look for opportunities to develop their skills and improve their career pathways. When leadership training is provided to individuals, not only does it show that your company is investing in their people, but it helps to nurture leaders through succession planning and career development. The combination of the two assists with attracting and retaining high performing leaders into your business.
Improves decision making
Leaders who are well informed and display a high level of emotional intelligence, are more likely to make well informed and intelligent decisions that align with your organisations goals.
