Training For New Managers

Oak Innovation



How to get training materials to train new managers and also save you time

It may not come as any surprise that new managers are often thrust into new roles without adequate training.

In fact, it has been shown that around 25% of managers surveyed in 2019 have never received any form of training.

A second 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.

However what is most surprising is that 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.

At Oak Innovation, we know that the journey for new managers is less straight forward than ever before. New managers divide their time across many roles and responsibilities, so it’s crucial they are exposed to a wider skill and knowledge base.

We’ve collected these best practices and packaged them into a practical training course on management skills for new managers that you can download and deliver when required.
