The best laid plans of men and mice go awry, if not implemented correctly.
If you speak to most employees who have been subjected to Employee Assistance Programs, you will hear them say: “It was mere window dressing”, “Management expect us to adhere to the principles, but they carry on regardless”, and so on….
Sad but true.
If you work in a corporate environment and you have been on any Lifeskills, Cultural Diversity, Business Writing, Time Management, Project Management and other training courses that are supposed to make you more efficient, effective, and productive you will know that very little, if anything, is applied once you get back to the office. Especially if the managers have not been on the courses themselves. You do not get the opportunity to practice what you have learnt, and very little support from your supervisor. All you are expected to do is get on with it; whatever the latest crisis or task is that was allocated to you. You need to be exceptionally diligent and self-motivated to apply what you have learnt and get more than about 10%-15%’s worth of the skills training you got.
How much more beneficial it would be for all if the process was handled better.
