Linked – How to Make L&D Easier for Managers

This should be obvious, but I suspect it isn’t.

Managers play a vital role in fostering a culture of continuous learning within their teams.

I have always thought it odd that more managers aren’t involved in the training and development process. Why wouldn’t they want to ensure the skills their employees are learning match the skills necessary for their team’s future success? And yet, so many send people off for “training,” assuming that the training staff is giving them the skills they need.

Don’t be that manager.

On the flip side, if you’re doing internal or customer training, why wouldn’t you want to talk to the management teams and ensure you’re teaching people the skills and workflows they need?

There is nothing more frustrating than spending time training users only to find out that the material didn’t fit what management was expecting, even though they never voiced those expectations.

So, let’s make this easier for everyone involved and get managers involved in developing their teams. This partnership works best if all three sides are engaged: employee, manager, and development professional.
