Management Training

Very few companies have the resources to provide top-notch executive coaching for every manager, and may even struggle to provide this service to even 10% of their managers. Yet the need for a foundation of consistent, effective management practices at the lower and middle levels of management remains high. Even a moderately effective training program can bring big returns for company productivity, morale, and profit. Training provides a way to provide large numbers of managers with the skills they need to succeed.

How do you tell good training from bad?

Bad training gives managers nightmares. Sitting through an all-day training means managers have to put aside their daily work, deadlines, and customers, and the experience and skills they gain better be worth itto them or the day wastes the time they typically don’t seem to have enough of.

Bad Training
  • Presented without regard to the audiences interest, needs, or attention span
  • Feels like an old-school classroom where there is no dialogue or useful interaction
  • Presents dated concepts in purely generic terms, irrelevant to real issues
  • Lacks discussion and interaction that helps managers integrate the information
  • Facilitated by incompetent trainers who don’t connect with the audience
  • Leaves participants with little they can remember or use later
Good Training
  • Presented in lively, engaging manner, with easy to grasp concepts
  • Allows for individual, small group, and large group interaction
  • Provides relevant skills and concepts
  • Uses variety (mini-lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises) in teaching
  • Creates opportunities to practice and apply concepts
  • Reinforces learning through coaching, consultation, and support
The GLC Formula

We learned long ago that good information is not enough to deliver a successful training program. How we present material in steps that make sense to the participants, our lively communication of the content, and the opportunity we give participants to really discuss, engage with and practice the skills make for a successful training experience. We build our trainings with variety in mind:
