How important is training and skills development to you as a leader? This question was posed to several business leaders in a recent study done by the Swedish magazine Chef & Karriär (#2, 2019). 89% answered that it was Important or Very important. Leadership training and specific skill development is a top priority. However, 53% stated that they’d had no training during the past year – mainly explained by four reasons:

  • Time: “I haven’t had the time” – 38%
  • Money: “My employer thinks it’s too expensive” – 12%
  • Prioritization: “I haven’t taken the initiative” – 35%, or “The employer does not prioritize skills development” – 22%
  • Relevancy: “It is hard to find relevant training” – 27%

Getting the most out of your team is both about enhancing the skill of each team member and how the team works together as a group.

According to Gothenburg based company Tidwell, studies show that “no management teams work at its full potential” – most often due to inefficiency (Dagens Industri, May 10, 2019). Inefficiency can be caused by many different things, but from our experience, it is most often explained by

  • Different perspectives and no common view of the current biggest business challenges for the company
  • Too little time spent discussing strategic and tactical issues
  • Lack of
    • common business understanding; team members talk past each other and often have imperfect insights into their colleagues’ specific business challenges and how it affects the total group output
    • direction and what to prioritize as a group
    • time, resources and specific competences
