This question has a range of answers – and they all include “everything that makes a great manager and leader, for every organisation, in every industry!”
Leadership – and managing a team of employees – comes down to far more than knowing how to face conversations, how to maintain documentation, how to delegate tasks among a team, and the operational and financial management of the company’s assets. It’s about inspiring people, supporting people, understanding business, and being passionate about the organisation and the people within it.
Great leadership means committing to performing well – and to supporting the whole team to do the same.
How can you inspire that kind of attitude in your future leaders?
To put it simply; support their development.
If you want to be sure that your future managers and leaders are as passionate about the growth and success of your organisation as you are, you need to show them that their professional development matters to you and to your company.
One way to do that is to invest in their growth, and support that development in a practical and effective way; an apprenticeship in leadership and management.
Don’t let your workforce stagnate and look elsewhere for their growth opportunities – nurture them, develop the skills they were employed for in the first place, and make use of the financial investments you have already made into your Apprenticeship Levy – and encourage your team to take part in a level 3 or 5 ILM accredited apprenticeship for leaders and managers.
If you have a wage bill over £3 million, you will already have invested in the Apprenticeship Levy – the cost for these apprenticeships is covered, and you won’t need to pay a penny more towards the training; our full cost is covered by the funds in your levy accounts. It frees up your existing L&D budget for other development needs.
If you don’t pay into the Apprenticeship Levy you can still introduce an Apprentice Programme and pay direct for the delivery – the prices for Level 3 are £4,500, and for Level 5 it’s just £7,000.
