Talk, Resolve, Achieve - Solving Your People Management Challenges

Posted by Tracy Powley 30/09/14

What to do when your people don't want to go on a training course...

Each month we will look at a challenging People management scenario and ask what would you do? We then offer some guidance to help you or your managers tackle the issue....

Our Difficult People problem this month is about how to engage people who don’t want to be trained!


You have had some managers grumbling about the lack of support and development over the last couple of years while the market has been tough, so you have scheduled some management development and a team building session, which you are delighted about.

But suddenly those managers don’t seem so keen and excuses about why they can’t attend are starting to rear their heads.

How do you engage them in their development?

Access your guidelines here.

The way we behave towards each other in the workplace has a direct impact on individual wellbeing, team performance and organisational results. This belief has underpinned our work at Focal Point for over 20 years and has never been more relevant. We are privileged to work with a huge variety of organisations wanting to get workplace behaviour and culture right - and to tackle the inappropriate behaviour that may get in the way of this. Supported by our fantastic team of facilitators and coaches, we are able to make a real difference to peoples’ lives as well as organisational performance. Having worked in both large businesses at management level and in 2 start ups at director level, I am able to combine hands on experience of growing and managing teams - and the associated challenges in creating the right culture - with over 20 years in learning and development. I hold the Certificate in Training Practice and am a member of CIPD. When I am not supporting clients or developing the Focal Point business, you will find me in a calming yoga class...
