Why Should a Manager Sit In on a Training Session?

Providing Business Coaching After the Training Course

Once a manager has organised training for one or more of their employees it can be tempting or seem logical for them to believe that their work is done and to sit back and relax.

In actual fact it is an extremely good idea for the manager to sit in on the training session so that afterwards they can provide effective business coaching for their staff members which builds upon the information taught on the training course.


Follow-up Sessions to Refresh and Reinforce the Information Taught

Workers will learn a lot from a good training session, but it is likely that even from the best session which incorporates interactive and participative elements they will not remember everything! Course handouts, books and materials which the attending delegates can take away and keep can be extremely valuable for reference later on when back in the workplace, but one of the most effective ways of reinforcing the learning and ensuring that employees use the information taught on the course is to schedule regular follow up sessions. These can either take the form of short additional training courses, or business coaching sessions between the manager and the employees to monitor progress on the changes to procedures or working practices that have been brought about as a result of the training.


Developing and Expanding Upon What Was Taught

When the manager has sat in on the training session, they will have a much better understanding of what was taught and the goals and objectives that the training session aimed to achieve. They can also use the information taught to form the basis of the additional coaching and training sessions to not only reinforce what staff members have learned, but also to further build and expand upon this information to create a truly effective and proficient workforce. Only by knowing what exact information they were given in the original session can it be built upon.
