I'm not a manager but do have charges under my influence. It seems I just have a more old-fashioned approach to training.
What I don't get is why, when I go to Microsoft training and the likes, I'm faced with raw input, lectures and monochrome stimuli. I'm then expected to take it all in and apply my newfound knowledge aptly, yet managers are encouraged (bribed with candy) to attend play-school because it's a "better" way to keep their attention and attendance.
If the case is that these measures are required to focus the attentions or our superiors, it begs the question; "Should an adult who needs to be trained like a child be my manager?"
Or if it's a better way to train across the board, why aren't all vocations taught in the same manner already?
