Companies spend millions annually on training their employees, in return, they expect a more engaged and productive workforce. What if I told you, we have had no noticeable improvement in employee attitude over the past decade.
So, is training employees a waste of time, money and resources? In his book, ‘Your Leadership Edge’, the author Ravinder Tulsiani talks about why employers have failed to capitalize on this investment and redirects the focus back at the top – the leadership.
“The source of the problem is not employees. Numerous exit interview studies have found that employees don’t leave companies, they leave their managers. Yet, most companies focus on carrot and stick approach to effect employee behaviour and engagement levels” says Ravinder.
Logically, if 70% of employees are disengaged in the workforce and most report leaving as a result of their experience with their managers – isn’t it time that we look at what the manager’s could do differently to improve employee disengagement situation?
So, is it the manager’s fault? No. Most manager’s became managers because they were good employees and were rewarded with a promotion. But, once promoted, very few organizations train their manager’s to manage properly. These managers rely on their past experience as employees themselves to manage their subordinates without any leadership training.
So, is the answer leadership training. Yes – in part. I firmly believe that training is rarely the silver bullet, however, a solid foundation is a prerequisite to leadership mastery. ‘Your Leadership EDGE’ will give you the foundation necessary to be an effective leader.
Using the step-by-step program outlined in each of the chapters in this book you will not only become more aware of the core leadership competencies; you will acquire the necessary leadership skills foundation that will enable you to develop and support a highly engaged and productive workforce.
