How to get training course materials on new manager skills, brand them as your own, and deliver the training courses you want to offer

At the heart of a training course on new manager skills is the ability to meet the needs of an audience that have just entered the world of management. We’ve invested heavily in finding the balance in terms of course content, and can now give you the content that you’ll need to deliver your own training courses to new managers.

This new manager skills training course can be delivered to 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.

Before we start digging into the content, we first want to share some important tips that you should consider while you deliver the material provided.

These tips are important.

  • First, management roles aren’t for everyone. Sure, some take to it like ducks to water, but there are some challenges that face modern managers. Let’s put some figures to this discussion. Around 25% of managers surveyed in 2019 have never received any form of training.
  • Second, new managers also divide their time across many roles and responsibilities. As a result, successful managers must possess a broader skill and knowledge base. An associated disturbing finding comes from a recent landmark Gallup study. They found that organizations fail 82% of the time to select the right candidate for managerial positions. And, that organizations continue to get this decision wrong over and over again.
  • Third, research has estimated that the resulting active disengagement of employees from poor management selection and training costs the U.S. – $450 billion to $550 billion per year.
  • And, finally you should already be seeing that management skills for a new manager are one of the most critical training courses to have in your training toolkit. Our customers frequently tell us of their challenges to help their new managers capacity to influence others and how to delegate more.

We hope this content makes it easier for you to deliver training courses on new manager skills and to offer the most practical content for your audience. Let’s now explore what you will receive.

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 of 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.

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

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.” We’ve all also heard the refrain of structuring activities, but in reality, the word gets thrown around so much that its meaning can be a little diluted.

There’s no simple solution. However, use the content provided first to explore what management is and what it’s not. Next, explore key concepts like division of labor and span of control. Then, examine the configuration, hierarchy, and structure.

Management theories – Understanding leadership skills will help your audience feel more prepared to perform their roles.

New managers need to explore fundamental management theories and how those theories can add value to their position. You should use the content to examine scientific management and classical management theories.

In today’s busy work environment, managers can overcome all manner of challenges. Especially when they have the necessary skills and experience. However, as they are new to their roles, there can be deficits in their skills base. And that’s why a new manager can advance their skills a lot quicker from research.

For best results, use the content provided to explore the Hawthorne Studies and Human Relations theory. Set aside some time to brainstorm on whether the results of these studies are observable within their respective companies.

Behavior – To be a successful new manager involves being informed about a lot of things and pretty focused. It’s what justifies the position, salary, and performance expectations. Many new managers can feel the pressure of expectations, and in many ways, these feelings are genuine.

In this section, use the content to explore systems and contingency. And discuss the functions and role of management. These discussions will ground your audience on a lot of the fundamental aspects of management. A great way to connect with your audience is to incorporate some personal reflections and, if possible industry-specific examples. This form of storytelling is essential.

The new manager – If your audience is like most new managers, you’ll have a group that wants to learn. However, and as a result, you may also have a group that just doesn’t know what they need to learn. This uncertainty happens, so don’t be surprised.

You should use the content provided to explore the 20th versus the 21st Century types of companies and high-performance teams.
