In every organization, training and development of people is required. The question often asked is “What training must we provide?” (in other words: what is the minimum we can get away with), when the question should be “Where should I invest my training budget to give me the best return?”.
The process should begin with knowing what skills, knowledge, expertise and competence are required to run your business. Once that is defined, you can assess your workforce and identify gaps that may hold you back from achieving your business objectives and deliverables. This is where your training and development dollars should be directed! Like a farmer who plans what crops he will reap at harvest time and, accordingly, selects the seeds he sows, you should invest in planting the seeds of skill and knowledge that you need within your workforce to deliver your product (harvest). The farmer would never think he could go to market with a crop without sowing the seeds, allowing them to germinate and mature. Allowing a budget for targeted training (training that will give you a return on your investment) is the first step towards ensuring you get something out of the training and development.
PULSE is very adept at assessing the knowledge and skill gaps in your business and providing you options of ready-to-go or customized programs and training that close those gaps. Our portfolio covers hard and soft skills and spans technical, leadership, people, organizational and business options that fit your needs, budget and timing.
How would you describe your relationship with your boss? Are you happy with the dynamics and how you work together? Being a Middle Manager, Supervisor or Executive Assistant is about adding value and contributing to an organization and people you believe in.
Each position requires a unique set of skills to achieve success. It isn’t easy and it isn’t always fun. But, with the right tools, it can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience.
By mastering the Managing Up concept, you will be able to understand the importance of framing the needs of your role, the needs of your boss and his/her style using the “You, Me, We” Approach, utilize the tools and resources provided to create a win/win/win, hold yourself, your boss and others accountable, and establish a stronger awareness in how you can make a difference.
Managing Up gives a clear roadmap to get what you need to ensure you can be great at what you do, become an invaluable asset to your boss and your organization and get recognized for your contribution.
