Your success as a leader depends on the fact that you grow constantly and develop yourself. When people climb the career path, it becomes harder to find appropriate leadership development opportunities. Experience can be achieved by taking on new guarantees or challenges. Skills can be developed by attending courses. Knowledge can be expanded in many ways, ranging from podcasts to taking some kind of university education, such as MBA. Developing personal qualities and behaviors that is so important to your leadership as a leader is very challenging and this is where leadership training can help. So what are the 5 benefits of leadership training?
Advantages 1: Customized to your needs
One of the main advantages of leadership training is that the program is great for focusing on those areas that are most important to you. We have all probably attended an event where up to 25% of the time was spent in areas where you were already highly qualified or capable. As a result, you do not get all the options you can from other areas because you became disconnected from the course.
Benefit 2: Continued Plan
Traditional one or two day programs are great in order to increase your knowledge and skills, but you get only one chance to succeed. Imagine, for example, that you are already a good presenter but want to take your skills to the next level. You could go to normal training and maybe get the benefits. Otherwise, you could work with a coach who specializes in presentations on time to do what you want, without the pressure being given one opportunity to get it right.
Advantages 3: Focus More than Just Working
A good coach will work with you to look forward to doing the job as a way to succeed. For example, you know it's your best based on healthy eating, taking exercise and enough sleep. Coach will help you make strong decisions about lifestyle issues so that you are successful as a leader.
Benefit 4: Increased Self-esteem
Success as a leader requires you to be voluntary. You need to know where you do the best, where you need to develop, how you influence others, how to get others to buy your ideas and vision to name just a few. Your coach will help you increase your self-esteem so that your success and results you achieve are even better than you are getting.
Benefit 5: Understanding Your Values
We all have values that are important to us. The problem is that most of us have never taken the time to determine our values, write them down and use them as a basis for decisions. As a leader, you must make many decisions and by clarity about your value, making decisions as a reference point will make it much easier. Coaches are highly qualified to help people identify and measure their value.
Benefit 6: Profitability
The key question people often have about training is what they get from working with a coach. Substantial studies have been conducted in this area, and the return on investment is estimated to be 500 to 700%. This might be as much a percentage, but let's look at an example to show. Imagine being a manager in your business and you want to go to the next level as a manager. The wage increase is 15-20 thousand krónur per year and you expect to be in that post for the next 3 years. Your additional income is £ 45-60,000 at the time. Even if you paid 1,000 krónur per month for one year training, you would still have a profit of 400-500% of your investment.
Training is not for everyone but for those who have committed to long-term leadership success, it can have a big impact.
