I’ve noticed that in many companies in Wellington, the higher you go up the ladder the less training you receive.
To gain skills in supervision, consider participating in Supervision Training Course offered by pdtraining in Wellington, Auckland, Dunedin and other cities in New Zealand.
Why is that? There must be an assumption by many companies that the more highly skilled you are the less training you require, but in fact the opposite is true!
The higher you are placed in an organisation usually means you not only have more responsibilities but you also have more people reporting to you.
Hence the wider number of skill sets you will be required to use on a daily basis.
Just because your job title includes “manager” doesn’t mean that you’re supposed to know everything already.
Many managers were promoted because they could do their previous role very well, but when they are placed in a position with more responsibilities they tend to stumble and fail because they have not been properly training in supervising others, communicating down line and managing staff expectations.
I’ve seen this happen again and again in the word of sales, where a superb sales person is promoted to the sales manager’s position.
It just so happens that the skills which make a great salesperson don’t necessarily make a great manager, nor will a great manager make a great sales person.
So if you find yourself recently promoted, but not getting the training and support you need, then take your destiny in your own hands and get some training on how to best supervise others.
You will become a better supervisor and your staff will certainly appreciate the new skills you now have in working more closely with them.
Learning new skills should be an absolute requirement for any supervisor, and if you haven’t attended a training course on supervising others, then you should add this to your list of goals.
