Why is manager/leader training important?

According to the Lorman Group (2021), “Employees who have received leadership training also have better teamwork skills and are more prepared to progress to higher positions. Not only does training help prepare junior staff for the future, but it also ensures tenured managers are actively working to enhance their leadership skills.”

Consider that “43% of managers who have been in their role for less than a year say they’ve had no training.”

According to (2021), training is essential to equipping first-time managers with the knowledge, skills, and aptitude necessary to be successful at motivating and leading a team.
