Studies show that the average age of first-time managers is 30, and the average age of people in leadership training is closer to 42. Studies correlating the dominance of millennial value system with a lack of candidates who seem prepared to take on managerial positions point towards a crisis of training for leadership roles.
While there is no dearth of training available, traditional training seem to miss out on seamlessness, scalability, accessibility and objectivity. The gaps arise from how traditional methods are put into practice and the ways in which the transformation of the workforce has affected expectations from learning.
The current trends around employee engagement show there is a wide scope for new learning methods that balance traditional ways by incorporating technology and the millennial ethos. There is a greater emphasis on soft skills rather than academic qualifications. Learning methods that foster creativity, collaboration and relationship building are the most suited for the new generation of managers.
