Team Skills

Some business owners are worried that if they train their team members that they will leave, however not training them means that you have a low skilled team and even worse they may stay! As a business owner it is your responsibility to develop their skills and offering them career advancement opportunities. If you don’t develop your teams skills then you won’t be able to advance either, because there’s no one to replace you.

Too often, businesses will try to save money by only training new employees or those that have recently been promoted. This is a mistake, because training helps people adjust to an ever changing business environment and the role they play within this environment. It also gives your business a pool of qualified and available people, who are ready to step into new roles as and when your business needs them.

The training process also helps you to develop a more effective, efficient, productive, and highly motivated workforce and reduces your staff turnover. However before you rush into developing your team, you must first identify the best development skillset for your people and your business and the easiest way to do this is to talk to your team to find out what training they want and need, and then work with them to get the required training both economically and efficiently.

Successful teams and businesses also put a lot of effort into developing future leaders. If you can identify and develop competent managers and supervisors within your business then you will ensure that you have people trained and ready to fill new leadership roles as your business grows, rather than being forced into recruiting unproven people externally. Recruiting externally isn’t only expensive and time consuming it can also demotivate your existing team members and increase staff turnover which also increases further your recruitment costs.
