    I was wondering what everyone is struggling with in regards to managing employees? Is it writing the job descriptions, hiring, performance management, disciplinary action or something else? I am struggling with performance management and disciplinary action and wanted to see what is giving everyone else problems.

    Training is an absolute necessity and many of the clients I counsel are challenged in developing dynamic training programs.

    As fast as things move these days if we don't train and communicate effectively we are running very high risks. The modern era in which we live demands that training is sophisticated, interactive and responsive to changing times. It should evolve out of core company processes and contain feedback mechanisms.

    Some training will be global, such as policy, corporate ethics and human relations. Other training will be specialized, such as changes in law, company policy or technology by functional areas.

    Principal among the topics at the head of the list for generic training in the art of something would be "Communicating Effectively" to employees to customers, to regulators; both orally and in writing.

    Training in business is a form of communication more than it is an academic pursuit, although elements of it may include learning new information.

    Still, it is not schooling in the sense of personal improvement as much as it is communication of company policy and expectations

    The best organizations make sure everyone from the chairman of the board to the janitor understands that training is a privilege, a right and a requirement and that it will be conducted as a matter of record for everyone.

    That's really nice and informative reply, Small to Feds. You need to take feedback from your staff about the current situation so that they can gain some trust and will let you know before they take any action. Communication gap can create big issue you should always talk with them. Training would be additional benefits it will boost the staff skills but make sure that you take the feedback after each training session.

    One of the challenges we encounter communication. How bosses and coworkers give feedback to each other. What seems like feedback for some people would feel like criticism for others.
