Did you undergo training in your current position at your company?
A. I wasn’t “trained,” I was thrown to the wolves on my first day.That’s normal, though… right?
B. Osmosis, baby! I followed someone for a while and watched what they were doing.
C. I could probably still use a little training…
D. I went through an amazing training program.
The truth is that 58% of managers reported they haven’t been given actual management training.* Yikes. Despite hiring candidates who would likely be great leaders, we aren’t taking the steps to train them on actually leading a team.
This training gap gets costly. According to the Association for Talent Development, companies that offer comprehensive training programs have 218% higher income and 24% higher profit margin per employee than companies without formalized training.** So despite the investment training requires, opting out of training means you’re literally saying, “No thanks,” to a pile of theoretical money on the table in front of you.
