Manager Training Discussion Topics

We just started a new weekly training and workshops program for the managers in the my company. As part of it, we had everyone come up with a few topics they’d be interested in discussing in future meetings. Here are the topics we’ll be discussing using the Gestalt Psychology experience sharing methodology:

  • Constructive criticism
  • Effective coaching to maximize strengths
  • Rivalries and motivation
  • Policy and procedure changes
  • Big rocks and prioritization
  • Dealing with underperforming team members
  • Effective delegation
  • New team member training
  • Determining employee effectiveness and effort
  • Frequency of communication
  • Best practices for departmental meetings
  • Dealing with inconsistent department workloads
  • Visibility into development cycles
  • Friend vs manager balance
  • Balance between micro-management and being hands-off
  • Dealing with missed timelines
  • Working with problem employees
  • Decision making without concensus
  • Delegating undesireable work
  • Strategies for minimizing overlapping work
  • Managing employees with inter-departmental responsibilities
  • Improving attitudes towards problem customers
  • Manaing people with skillsets you don’t have (e.g. programmers)
