Clients who’ve utilised our Management Development services
Navigating the different areas of management development
Management development encompasses more than simply focusing on the success or performance of managers who have already been in the business for a period of time. We place importance on new and aspiring managers just as much as senior managers with plenty of experience under their belts.
Often individuals are promoted into leadership positions without the understanding or knowledge of what it means to be a leader. We cover the fundamentals of leadership and what the purpose is of a leader with the aim to support individuals who wish to progress into roles that involve leading people and want to increase confidence, knowledge and skills in how to effectively manage people.
At LTT we believe that building the right manager mindset from the start ensures you are building from the ground up good managers who have the right skills, confidence and will to engage and motivate others in the business.
Management vs Leadership
It’s clear the world of work has permanently shifted and the old Parent-Child, top-down approach is out. We believe Leadership needs to adopt the kind of agile servant leader mentality that will give them the flexibility to fulfill their people’s needs, rather than the other way around.
Easier said than done right! We’ve argued that you can’t train a leader, but you can train a great manager.
Managers should be one of your main assets when it comes to creating a positive, psychologically safe internal culture.
Whilst we believe that leadership is more of an innate quality, it doesn’t mean that your high potential candidates cannot be developed.
Leadership goes much further than daily management of resources, projects, or processes, and not all team leaders will show the innate traits and emotional intelligence (EQ) required to support, motivate, and energise their staff.
So, how can organisations ensure they have the right people in place, and retain them into the business during this difficult post-pandemic period? At LTT, we believe in a two-pronged approach that includes both a succession planning and a learning and development (L&D) strategy.
