Career Development, Business Coaching and Training
Whilst some will actually prefer it and be reluctant towards any sort of change, the majority of employees within a company will be unhappy if they feel that they have reached a plateau where their career is concerned. For many, the advancement of their career and the added responsibility and rewards that come with it are a key driver for their performance and commitment towards their workplace activities.
They give their all in order to impress management who will then be willing to offer them a promotion when the opportunity arises. In so doing, this effort translates into high levels of productivity, output, new ideas and innovation; all of which contributes greatly to the achievement of the business's goals and targets.
Business coaching and training courses play a significant part in the personal development of an individual, not to mention underperforming teams who are in need of greater cohesion and skills such as communication. The learning of new skills in conjunction with making use of business coaching sessions with either an external business coach or a manager who has obtained the ILM accredited Level 5 Coaching qualification can be a powerful combination for career development.
Whilst managers are often keen to provide the opportunity for training for their staff members so that they can advance their skill sets and be able not only to take on additional work but also to do things to a higher standard, it is important for individuals to keep in mind that quite often they will need to be the ones who drive their personal development forward rather than relying upon a manager to tell them what and when they need training. This can include asking managers for additional responsibility, suggesting possible training courses that will benefit them now or in the future, or even embarking on courses and qualifications in their own spare time outside of work.
