The Need

Everyone wants teams that come to work and perform their tasks calmly, efficiently and studiously. We want teams that are self-sufficient and function cohesively and cooperatively with no drama or negativity. While this is unusual, it’s very possible and not as rare as you may believe. To create a dynamite team takes a skilled manager or supervisor. The leader only needs to do two things:

  1. Remove negativity from the work environment
  2. Keep all team members focused on the team goals

Yes, it does take some skill to accomplish those two tasks. Skills interacting with people and skills organizing, planning and controlling tasks and activities. Once learned and committed to, a leader or manager can create dedicated conscientious teams that continuously pursue success. As if that’s not enough, they also are able to teach their teams to be self-starters and self-sufficient in their efforts. This allows the leader to fulfill their other obligations middle managers and leaders end up with in today’s lean organizations.

The key is the manager or leader doesn’t learn to make the team adopt and operate with those traits. When trained with the proper skills and techniques, the manager learns to influence the team members, so they want to take the responsibility and create their own success.

You may be thinking, that’s too good to be true. However, it’s not. It requires the manager or leader to learn the specific interpersonal, influencing leadership, and workplace performance skills (organize, plan, control and close out tasks, activities and projects). The key to your leaders and managers picking up and learning to use these skills is getting the right training and getting it in the right manner.

Online Leadership TrainingIf you’ve been around for a while you’ve probably seen or participated in training sessions whether an in-house trainer or outside consultant. Training is successful when it’s tailored to the need, delivered interactively, assessed for effectiveness and reinforced with ample follow up coaching. We must remember that the purpose of training is not entertainment, it’s education. When training is generalized, delivered focused on time instead of assimilation or filled with entertainment activities, you can say you had training but rarely say there was any significant change in performance of the participants. The purpose of training is to learn new skills and behaviors that enhance abilities, provide new results, and change your abilities permanently. Like the skills you already know, that depth of assimilation requires multiple exposures and practice. Training should be enjoyable, yet focused on the desired outcome.

In addition to tailored curriculum and a focus on skills assimilation, it requires an instructor that is a SME (subject matter expert). Not only a subject matter expert but also has the skills to continuously test for knowledge assimilation and make the necessary adjustments to be a catalyst for the necessary skills assimilation. It’s not enough to provide the information, anyone with the presentation materials can do that. It requires the ability to assess an individual’s knowledge level and provide the exact information that moves each to the next level of knowledge on the subject. Most importantly, it requires an instructor that can adjust to the participant’s needs on the fly but that also has the knowledge and experience that can provide the information in the manner the participant needs it to be able to understand it. The right SME can answer any related question using both knowledge, personal experience and full insight into what works and what doesn’t and why.

online management trainingFor training to provide significant R.O.I, or any for that matter, it takes the right information, with a skilled instructor / S.M.E. and delivered the right way. Ask yourself, do you want training or the results you’re after? Of course, the results!

What are the required skills of a mid-level manager?

Mid-level managers are in a unique position. The fact is, they have requirements to be a success in their position that other levels of mangers and supervisors do not face. Mid-level managers must communicate continuously upward to management, as well as, to their front line supervisors in the other direction. They must plan and organize employee efforts, allocate resources and effect interdepartmental coordination. The skills necessary to engage their management, front line reports and peers is invaluable and not optional to their success. At the same time, the skills to delegate, plan, organize and follow-up are vital to their consistent and continuous success! The marketplace is full of research outlining the horrors and disappointment that ensues when mid-level managers do not have these fundamental and very necessary skills.


According to Gallup:

A recent Gallup poll of more than 1 million employed U.S. workers confirmed the No. 1 reason people quit their jobs is a bad boss or immediate supervisor. “People leave managers, not companies … . In the end, turnover is mostly a manager issue,” Gallup reported. Gallup also reported that poorly managed work groups are on average 50% less productive and 44% less profitable than well-managed groups.
Turn-over cost an organization up to 2x the position’s annual salary per individual replaced research shows.
By Gallup’s estimates, the “not engaged” group costs the U.S. $77 billion to $96 billion annually through their impact on those they manage. And when we factor in the impact of the “actively disengaged” group, those figures jump to $319 billion to $398 billion annually.

Having confidence in their abilities, receiving recognition for achievement, creating opportunities for advancement through performance and of course, having a good supervisor themselves, are the things that engage mid-level managers and pay huge dividends for the organizations they work with!
