australian employers embracing a hybrid work model into the future

Is leadership training important?

Short answer—yes.

Long answer—also yes—if it’s effective training.

A question often gets asked by some organisations – ‘What if you train people and they leave? All that investment, walking out the door. It’s true and it can happen. But there’s a confronting alternative.

What if you DON’T train your people and they STAY?’.

The way of working has changed dramatically in the last two years, yet the skills that leaders need is changing at a velocity we haven’t seen before. No longer can leaders rely on traditional approaches to building and maintaining performance and culture in their teams. The seismic changes in the way we work (think hybrid) has leaders rethinking everything in the pursuit to understand the future of work.

Yet where do they get the skills to navigate this?

Leadership training, of course.

But not all leadership training is created equal—leadership training needs to be practical, relatable and scientific. These are the three lenses we use at PT.

The purpose of leadership training is to change behaviour—of your leaders, your team, and the company. Importantly, this change needs to be aligned to the future state of work, not a rubber-band-snap-back to pre-COVID times. Yet for this to be successful it can’t just be future focused alone; it must be relatable— no one is snoozing off in the back row, or simultaneously trying to triage their inbox under the table—and deeply rooted in science—because, well, science knows best.
