According to the 2022 Workplace Learning Report by LinkedIn, almost half of EMEA businesses have leadership and management training as one of their top three priorities for the next 12 months.
We haven’t seen half of managers change across all industries and although turnover is likely to be substantial, it won’t be half of the manager population in 2022.
Are we recruiting people who are completely to new to management into manager roles? People new to management as a role will have different needs to those who have managed elsewhere and are ‘new’ in terms of organisation or sector. But we’re not recruiting the first kind of new manager based on intuition – we will expect to have seen some evidence of leadership, supervision, approach and engagement that meant they were employed as a manager.
A brief look at the content in a few places and it’s almost certainly going to fall into the same few buckets:
- Successful projects
- People, mentoring, coaching
These have been the same core topics for the last 30 years of my time in learning and development all that’s changing is the addition – this year – of ‘a hybrid world’ at the end of each topic.
