I believe that in the UK the average manager is reluctant to pay for their staff to be coached in the workplace, what are they afraid of?
A sub question could be, does a UK manager really know what their staff need to feel good about their job?
Hello John. Nice plug.
I believe the issue often comes down to cost. I have found that most companies do not like to buy ad-hoc (excluding technical skills) training for their staff.
A sales organisation might get training at the introduction of a new CRM tool, but to pay for individual courses for people is difficult often to get budget for.
I don’t think it is about being afraid.. but being apathetic. The real question is, how many UK managers are trained themselves, to be managers in the first place? How many of them truly understand their role within the make up of an organisation?
