The Top 10 Books for Training Managers

As a Training Manager, you already know how important it is to continue learning and I'm sure you've already got a long reading list. Often, we're too busy providing learning opportunities for others, that we struggle to fit in our own CPD - unless it's a course or workshop that's in our calendar.


Reading is a perfect way to keep up with your learning, without spending too much time away from work. You can even listen instead if that suits you better. Even reading (or listening) for 10-20 minutes each day adds up to whole books you wouldn't normally have thought you'd have time for.


Here are my top ten books for training managers in no particular order:
