How to present your own training courses on new manager skills

Are you finding it hard to create a training course for new managers’ skills?

It happens to all of us.

Creating content takes time.

And, lots of people just don’t have the time to develop everything needed from scratch.

Do you want a quicker solution?

You can now use the content below to present your own training courses to new managers.

You can even brand everything as your own.

This new manager skills training course will meet the challenges faced by new managers, supervisors, human resource professionals, owner-managers, and senior business officials that are looking to develop and enhance their management skills.

Let’s explore this training course material further.

Course overview

When it comes to developing new managers, most companies follow a traditional approach of learning on-the-job and some off-site courses.

But what divides the top companies from the rest?

Focused development.

This course will teach course participants about the organization, highlight management theories, get participants talking about behavior, and focus on skills for new managers.

The course is for people serious about developing new management skills, and who are ready to bring their learning to the next level.

Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 4 key sections of this training course.

1. Ground your audience by exploring what is an organization

What is the first thing your audience will think of when they hear the word organization?

Most people will probably say, “that’s where I work”.

But, the answer needs to be a lot better than that.

When it comes to understanding organizations, there are things your audience needs to know about – and there are things they don’t need to know about.

Use the content provided to:

  • Explore what management is and what it’s not.
  • Examine key concepts like division of labor and span of control.
  • Discuss the configuration, hierarchy, and structure.

Aim to create an atmosphere that builds trust and shows that you’re offering solutions to the needs of your audience.

2. Focus on management theories

While it may be tempting to provide lots of details, and case studies, it’s best to present practical content that is easy to understand. This means your audience won’t have to strain themselves while still developing practical skills.

To illustrate, understanding leadership skills will help your audience feel more prepared to perform their roles.

Next, use the content to:

  • Explore fundamental management theories and how those theories can add value.
  • Examine scientific management and classical management theories.
  • Explore the Hawthorne Studies and Human Relations theory.

We suggest that you brainstorm on whether the results of these studies are observable within your audience’s companies.

Explicitly asking for feedback will highlight things that your audience may not even have known about themselves.

And, this feedback will help your audience to develop more practical skills.

3. Get your audience talking about behavior

Few things are as intimidating as entering a management role for the first time: the heart is pounding, imposter syndrome on the rise, doubt sets in, like you’re going to be discovered as a fraud any moment.

Sound familiar?

Of course, there are others whose transition is perhaps less traumatic.

But, to be a successful new manager involves being pretty focused. It’s what justifies the position, salary, and performance expectations.

In this section, you can use the content to:

  • Explore systems and contingency.
  • Discuss the functions and role of management.

Incorporate some personal reflections, and if possible industry-specific examples, to make the content more meaningful.

These discussions will ground your audience on the fundamental aspects of management.

4. Keep everyone focused on new manager skills

If your audience is like most new managers, you’ll have a group that wants to learn.

You want your message to be heard and remembered so we suggest you use the content provided to:

  • Explore the 20th versus the 21st Century types of companies.>/li>
  • Discuss high-performance teams.

Always remember, your audience will pay more attention to your course content if you engage them with solutions to their needs.

What our customers say

As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak. I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers with their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal. One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials.
