Skills development plan

How can we identify managers’ training needs?

How can we optimise a managerial
training plan?

Developing your business through management lines

  • On average, a manager manages a payroll of €400K per year with a team of 4 to 8 people
  • Managers are often experts, which does not presuppose managerial talent
  • A poor manager has an impact on the productivity of teams, not just his or her own team
  • The number one cause of staff turnover in companies is poor management

The managerial lines in a company are a lever for growth.

MyCampus Management: assess, support

Assess Manager offers managerial assessment tools for objective diagnosis.

It’s an aid to decision-making and support.

Click on “MyCampus Management” in your Assess Manager account:

  • Invite a manager to take the managerial assessment. Or a whole group of managers.
  • In an average of 23 minutes, each manager completes the online questionnaire. It’s made up of situations and preference questions. Any individual can complete it, including someone not yet in a management position.
  • You have immediate access to the individual results showing the managerial posture of each person, the managerial skills developed and the skills still lacking.
  • The individual results show the training needs of each person, and coaching recommendations where appropriate.

From individual diagnosis to collective training plan

If you have carried out a diagnosis of just a few managers, the individual approach is sufficient. For more than 10 managers, it is easier to consult the collective report as a complement.

  • Generate a collective result for the group being assessed
  • Consult the group’s assessment showing the company’s managerial culture, and the group’s strengths and needs for progress.
  • Refine the analysis by also consulting the recommended training plan according to each person’s priority needs. You will see, by skill, the groups of managers to be trained.
    In concrete terms, the “Delegating” training course, for example, will bring together all the managers who need to improve their delegation skills
  • The same principle will be applied to all the managerial skills assessed.

This personalised training plan will enable you to identify priorities to help as many people as possible to progress, thereby optimising your training investment.

The collective training plan will be further personalised by means of an individual debriefing of each manager.

  • A test debrief is a real wake-up call, the first step in a training programme. We can support you in this process.
  • Support your managers’ progress
  • Discover and use the training and coaching booklets that complete this offer.

Pedagogical tools for management development

Each skill assessed in the managerial diagnosis is equipped with tools to help managers progress. They are used in different ways depending on the company, and are available in the “MyCampus Management” area once you have opened an account.

The book on delegation, for example, includes :

  • Explanations of the psychological obstacles to delegating, to help you understand each other better
  • Solutions to overcome these obstacles
  • Examples of unsuccessful delegations to illustrate the risk markers
  • Tools and a user’s guide for implementing successful delegation
  • Guided exercises to get you started and build on what you have learned.

Few managers will make optimum progress without training or coaching, but these tools will provide substantial support.

How should the results of the managerial assessment be presented?

Reporting the results of the management test is the first stage in a manager’s progress. It is sometimes the strongest marker of their progress, triggering off new ideas and providing them with benchmarks for potential new practices.

The test report should only be given at theend of the debrief and not beforehand, to avoid any misinterpretation. The aim is to encourage progress and openness.

The test debrief can be conducted from several angles:

  • As a group, with a progressive approach to the issues to be addressed.
  • Individually, in summary or in depth, depending on the issues and objectives.

Companies generally prefer to use Assess Manager and its partners to carry out this important stage.

It enables them to identify the best support strategy: coaching or training.

“We see defensive or closed attitudes among some managers, and we realise that this has a direct impact on the effectiveness of their teams, and sometimes even on their well-being. For some people, acknowledging their difficulties is an admission of failure. We don’t always manage to get people to speak out. It’s also often the managers who manage to avoid taking part in the management training courses that we usually offer

Using an external consultant to debrief the test makes it much easier, while being much less violent than a 360°.
