It’s amazing just how many people can get stressed about certain aspects of their job, or feel blocked in their career as a result of just not knowing if what they are doing is actually the right thing to do! Unfortunately, in an almost full Irish employment market, there is often a situation where there may be a scarcity of management available to let you know how you’re doing, if what you are doing is actually ‘on the money’ or to show you how you could do things better. This is particularly apparent in today’s world when working in what is becoming a highly regulatory working environment where many staff, directors and very much so, senior management, are unaware of their regulatory obligations and the compliance parameters they must work within.
As a training company, we see this every day. However, it genuinely gives the team enormous professional pleasure to listen to our attendees when leaving our training centre. The sheer relief on delegates faces of now knowing how to do things better, how to do things the right way, how to stay on the right side of compliance, how you can operate, in a practical way within the new regulatory obligations, and so on.
We all face challenges and threats to business or our careers or our jobs themselves and it’s not a good feeling to know you’re trying to do a great job but not knowing if you are doing it right, or you have never received clear instruction as to how it could be done better. The simple answer to address this challenge is training.
People feel empowered when they have proper training
No one knows it all, and those wishing to learn more, in my opinion should be valued, not just for their desire to learn, but for what they will bring to the business or organisation post training. Listening to some of our delegates as they leave our training facility, I have heard comments such as ‘ I was so nervous when I came here but I’m so glad I did’ or ‘it wasn’t as complicated as I thought it would be’ and one of my favourites, ‘I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders’ and so many other wonderful comments.
People feel empowered when they have the proper knowledge and training and that empowerment ultimately delivers more enthusiasm, better results for the business and a huge boost of confidence in the person carrying out their duties in their workplace, often with immediate positive results. Try it and see!
