Training managers is a great idea in theory but often not so great in practice. Managers are intensely busy professionals who don’t have any extra time. Lengthy training sessions just put them further behind and add to their stress. Consultant and speaker Lisa Haneberg and the American Society for Training and Development have developed a training approach that avoids those problems. Using their “Power Hour” curriculum, which consists of what they call “learning conversations” about relevant management problems, managers can upgrade their skills quickly. Although not much in this book is new, getAbstract recommends it to management trainers, and to middle and senior managers who are responsible for developing other leaders and management teams, and who want a quick review.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why management training is important
- Why a series of brief management training sessions is better than one long session
- What the “Power Hour” training method is and 4) How to plan and organize Power Hour sessions.
