Effective managers who are genuinely concerned with team members’ efficiency, productivity, and happiness, realize that training and personal development are absolute necessities. Corporate managers need to know this. Some managers, of course, work to avoid training their work force because they fear that eventually a team member will replace them at the helm of the organization. You should choose to look on this possibility as an incredible benefit. If you have no one prepared to take your place, you are destined to stay just where you are! It is also true that most managers avoid training because they believe trainees will advance past them.
