Practice 4: Skills and Training
Maintain a skill base that keeps your workforce contemporary and able to compete.
As a manager, you have two main objectives for your Skills & Training Practice: first, to build the capabilities of your team; and second, to build your own individual capabilities. However, as in most companies, your training budget is probably stretched thin. We’ll introduce you to a variety of low-cost internal training opportunities, together with a few well-chosen external training opportunities. Then, of course, we’ll help you deploy the One Stop LeaderShop manager training program for managers in your organization.
Skills & Training is included under the One Stop LeaderShop mega-heading Workforce Development.
