4 Elements of Great Management Training Program

4 Elements of Great Management Training Program

Training and development are essential to the success of your business, but have you ever wondered if your training dollars are yielding results for your company’s bottom line? Corporate training is a multibillion-dollar industry and many development programs are designed based on theory and do not have scientific data to back up content. The only way to measure success is to wait and see. This presents a challenge when trying to implement training programs best suited for your company’s unique needs. After realizing the void for a program driven by data, Evolve Performance Group developed 4 Elements of Great Management.

The Issue

According to the Gallup Organization, people are generally promoted to a managerial position for two reasons: tenure and success in role. They found that 1 in 10 people have the natural talent to manage others and only another 2 in 10 can be developed into managers. As a result, Gallup estimates that organizations promote the wrong people 82% of the time. The 4 Elements of Great Management program is our way of supporting the 7 out of 10 managers who have the technical competence to fill these positions but need assistance with the people part.

Our Approach

Our approach to management training is based upon years of employee engagement research and its link to business performance. Managers/leaders have a direct impact on the engagement of their team members and an employee’s level of engagement directly impacts metrics such as turnover, safety, per person productivity, and profitability.

For one organization, employees in the bottom half of engagement lost 8,100 man hours annually because of safety related incidents. The top half of engagement lost only 936 man hours.

We help managers, managers help employees, and employees move the bottom line.

Program Overview

4 Elements of Great Management is a four-step program that begins and ends with measuring employee engagement. We can measure the engagement of a small team, a department, a location, or the entire organization. Step 2 is identifying the natural talents of the managers attending the in-person training session (step 3). We do this using the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment. During the in-person training session, we work directly with managers and leaders on understanding their natural themes of talent and how their approach to management impacts their team members. We also review employee engagement survey results and discuss tactical steps to help them better manage and lead their teams. Our 4 Elements – My Job, My Manager, My Team, and My Growth are used to help simplify management conversations and include related activities to ensure that team member needs are met.

We re-measure employee engagement for participants and their teams 90 days’ post-course to check on progress. This actionable approach to manager training is measurable and not only benefits managers but also their team members.
