What steps does your organisation take to ensure its managers have the skills required to fulfil their management role?
Is the policy to assume new managers will pick up the skills as they go along? If it is, then maybe it’s time to review the policy and think about how a business management games could help your organisation.
“You’d never expect a doctor to just make it up as they go along, and similarly there is best practice in management which is a teachable, learning thing.” Paul Geddes (Direct Line Group)
All managers, whatever their area of operation, need some essential skills. They need to be able to plan the work of their team, delegate the work to the most appropriate person, communication the plan and other contextual information, build relationships and critically solve problems.
Our management games provide the perfect opportunity for new managers and existing managers to develop both their management skills and their self-awareness in a safe environment. It is important to remember that many people do not leave their job, they leave their boss. So, a failure to ensure managers have the right skills may be shortsighted.
We have a range of package games to ensure your managers have the essential skills they need. The games can be purchased and used in-house with a member of the training team or a more experienced manager taking the facilitation role. If you do not have access to a facilitator, then please ask us for assistance.
