In this podcast episode, DecisionWise Principal Consultant, Dan Hoopes, discusses the topic of job training and how you, as a manager, can help employees perform their best.

We tend to treat job training as event to help us perform a task. However, if we can tie training with learning and developing as people, it becomes less of an event and more of an application.

Training is most effective when you can create a cycle of application and reflection, coupled with mentoring and feedback.

It’s important to remember that your leverage as a manager comes not from your individual contribution but from developing the capabilities of people within your span of control and making them better so you can produce better outcomes.
