Business Coaching and Training for a New Manager

Developing New Managers

Business coaching can be ideal for developing new managers, particularly in conjunction with relevant management training courses. Those new to a first line management position and have not received much, or indeed any, training in the past will often find themselves lacking the knowledge about how to do certain tasks or how to do them in the most effective and productive manner, as not only have they not been taught anything before but they will not have the experience to call upon like a seasoned veteran manager or executive will have.

This is why it is so important to provide a new and inexperienced manager with the support, training, coaching and guidance required as they settle in and acclimatise to their new job role.

Management Development and Business Coaching

Whilst management training such as first line manager courses teach lots of useful and practical information on the course syllabus, it is also highly beneficial for the new manager to regularly see a qualified business coach. Although it will not teach any information like a training course, by engaging in business coaching the individual will find that a person who has a lot of knowledge in this particular field will be able to work with the new manager to create relevant goals and objectives, along with the action plans regarding how to achieve them.

Management Training and Business Coaching

New manager training courses can be viewed more as the providing of information, whilst business coaching is more to do with helping the manager to put that new-found knowledge to practical use when back in the workplace. This will be achieved by discussing with the person which areas of their training they are having difficulties with in terms of its implementation and how effectively or otherwise they are succeeding in achieving their objectives when it comes to being a successful manager within the business.

Although both training and business coaching can be provided independently of each other, for maximum effectiveness utilising the benefits of both in conjunction with each other gives the new manager the best chance of progressing quickly when it comes to their abilities as a manager.

Exchanges and Temporary Moves

Where a manager is yet to begin their duties as a new manager, there will sometimes exist with the organisation an opportunity for the person to gain some experience of the role by temporarily taking charge of a team or department. This can allow the senior management of the company to observe and evaluate how well the person does before promoting them to a permanent managerial position.

Business coaching sessions can also be employed during this period to enable the individual to develop their skills.

It is also not unusual for certain employees to be "loaned out" to other companies in order to pick up new skills and observe different ways of working, sometimes being exchanged with employees from that company in a similar way to how university exchange programmes work in terms of learning new skills in new surroundings.
