Impellus study discovers management training turns resolutions into results


New Year’s resolutions are typically associated with poorly-considered personal promises. Not in the world of leadership and management training it would appear. A study by Impellus, an ILM Approved Centre, reveals that Managers who undertake leadership and management training in January are more likely to take real action.


A study of over 2,000 Managers* reveals that the impact of training leaps by 16.3% when taken in January. Analysing when Managers attended their training, there was a significant rise in those stating that they were putting new skills directly back into the workplace when trained at the beginning of the year.


Is this just a coincidence, or is the New Year vigour helping Managers commit to making a real difference in their role? It would appear that the drive to implement change and resolution needs structure. Training provides Managers with the framework and processes to implement their goals, thus management training in January really is likely to give a better result.


So what are your Managers’ New Year’s resolutions? Training Managers with the desire for improvement now should provide a measurable and lasting impact in 2015.
