Effective Management Training Courses
The best training programs for managers rely on more than relevant content topics. When researchers asked managers about training they had received, more than nine in 10 (92%) said the programs were ineffective because they weren’t engaging.
For years, Media Partners’ manager training courses have won awards for their ability to build knowledge and skills by engaging learners with compelling storytelling and real-world workplace scenarios. Further, video-based learning is supplemented and reinforced by training guides, job aids, and other resources that provide managers with content that’s easily accessible in the fast flow of daily work.
With many organizations shifting to large populations of remote or distributed employees in the wake of the pandemic, effective manager training programs must be accessible via multiple devices. Media Partners’ products fit both electronic and in-person learning formats, and are accessible through learning management systems and the company’s own platform.
Because busy work schedules are a primary stumbling block impeding manager training effectiveness, Media Partners’ training solutions offer options that enable bite-sized content ideal for unforgiving schedules and the flexibility managers need to learn asynchronously.
Managers hold some of the most business-critical positions in organizations today, and their knowledge and skills can mean the difference between a workforce of engaged, creative, productive employees and those who are desperate to flee incompetent, poorly trained supervisors. Effective training for managers is the solution in which top companies wisely invest.
