More often than not, much onus in a business is on learning specific skills that will help with the heavier technicalities of your companies industry. And while obviously these skills are vital to you being able to do your job effectively and to add value to your position, there are also many supporting skills that may seem fairly unrelated, but can actually be the difference between a lagging, unproductive team and one that is lean and efficient that hits its targets with ease. But what skills should you focus on? Well this can vary from team to team and company top company, however here are a few tips to help your staff to pick these skills up as quickly as possible.
When learning anything you will have to experience or do some teaching, which is part of the overall education process however you will want to be extremely careful on how you approach the education side of the training. If the learning process is seen as tedious or boring then inevitably what will happen is that people will lose momentum and become demotivated to learn. Try to avoid making it too heavy or unnecessarily drawn out, this will help keep your students “engaged”.
Find good Trainers
It may be cheaper to teach your staff about a skill by yourself with just some printed materials and a whiteboard. However we all had teachers who tried their hardest to make the teaching element of their lessons as easy as they possibly could and subsequently they are almost universally the kind of teacher that you never learned anything from. To really ensure that your employees will take on the information you want them to apply then it’s vital you find experience and qualified training experts who have the knowledge, experience and materials and techniques to really make the information stick in your staffs minds.

Teach your staff to be positive about the changes
To be frank this is more of an attitude you have to foster with your team rather than a skill that needs to be learnt. To effectively accept change at work that will affect the way they do everything professionally, it makes sense that they have to change as people and at the other end of the spectrum is people who are totally unwilling to change, these will be the hardest people to teach by far. A good way of instilling this into your staff is to bite the buyllet and lead from the front. In their eyes, if even management is stepping up and trying to change then it may be worth their while to do the same.
