A Manager Does Not Have to Do All of The Training Themselves
Resource Availability Sometimes Compels Managers to Perform Training Themselves
Some managers, particularly those responsible for a small team or have little to no budget available at present to spend on training and staff development, may get into the mindset of thinking that they have to provide all of the training or business coaching to their employees themselves. Not only is this often impractical in terms of the manager's time available to provide the training, but it is highly likely that the manager does not have enough knowledge, experience or expertise to make employees proficient in their particular workplace duties.
Additionally, whilst they may be good managers, they may lack specific skills which allow them to sufficiently perform the training and impart their knowledge from themselves to their team members.
Try to Utilise External Training Providers
Instead of trying to muddle through and provide a less than comprehensive level of training for them, managers should wherever possible call on others who may be better placed to provide a more effective training session.
This will often be through finding the funds necessary for an external training provider, but can also be a person within the organisation who has the time, knowledge and training skills necessary to provide valuable training which greatly facilitates the development and proficiency of these workers.
So a manager who has a desire to provide their team with training and coaching to develop their abilities does not have to take on the entire responsibility themselves, and can act as an organiser and facilitator rather than performing the actual training themselves if they do not have the skill or time resources available to dedicate to the task.
