FAQs

Why should organisations develop people on the job?

90% of what we have learnt in our working life has been learnt by doing, on the job.

Yet most businesses leave this opportunity for learning to chance, leading to little behavioural change. Many businesses invest in management systems that track the 10% (formal training) leaving the remaining 90% to chance. That’s where YakTrak comes in. Use YakTrak to:

  • Track goals and development conversations improves performance
  • Help leaders understand where they need to spend their time to drive results
  • Provide clarity around expectations
  • Empower your management team by giving them the coaching career resources and professional guidance they need to develop their people

What is a people development strategy?

An organisation’s people development strategy can develop staff to their full potential. It can include workshops and programs that take place out of the work environment and should be supported by on-the-job training.

We’ve seen that strategies are successful when they are focused on embedding the behaviours that leadership want to see in the workplace. To do this effectively a regular coaching program that focuses on the inputs that you want to see will deliver sustained higher outputs. In fact, employees report that organisational performance management systems are more effective when managers coach team members (McKinsey).

  • Don’t focus on all measurable outputs at once – instead get sustainable results by setting goals related to specific behaviours that drive the desired outputs. The key to long-term improvement is focusing on the actions and behaviours staff need to demonstrate to improve their outputs.
  • Use YakTrak to help give your frontline and management the tools they need to develop – one step at a time.

How do you develop an employee?

Effective people development plans involve more than running training workshops. (The 70:20:10 rule developed by Morgan McCall, Robert Eichinger and Michael Lombardo advances the widely accepted idea that only 10% of learning and development takes place in a training room while 90% happens on-the-job with the support of leaders.)

Your business can develop its workforce with coaching – focusing on where the behaviours matter:

  • Ensuring goal setting is managed in a sustainable way
  • Tracking outputs and recognising success
  • Giving managers and team leaders the resources to coach staff
  • Setting up a consistent rhythm to ensure coaching stays on track

YakTrak supports businesses to improve speed to competency with powerful systems to:

  • Provide notifications so coaching becomes a habit
  • Improve visibility over the activities leaders undertake with staff
  • Help leadership understand where they need to spend their time to drive maximum results

What are the essential steps for developing a workforce?

Focus on where leaders can coach employees can deliver powerful improvements. To do this a company should, for example:

  • Embed learning and coaching into the daily routine of its workforce
  • Motivate with regular goal setting and feedback
  • Track and monitor coaching progress and outputs
  • Use systems, like YakTrak’s, that provide visibility and establish a regular coaching rhythm
