What’s stopping managers from learning?

What’s stopping managers from learning?

‘Unlocking the potential of leaders and managers is critical to the success of every high performing organisation’. That’s according to Towards Maturity who recently published a new ‘In Focus’ report titled’ Unlocking the potential of managers and leaders. The report suggests that whilst 91% of managers want to learn, 61% lack the time needed for self-study. Other barriers include uninspiring content (37%), lack of somewhere appropriate to study (35%) and technical issues including IT firewalls, bandwidth, equipment and infrastructure.

The appetite for managers to learn is encouraging, however it is concerning to see the barriers that sit in the way of this happening that in some cases could be easily shifted.

You can download the full report here.

I’m interested to hear your thoughts on this. Do the barriers mentioned in the report exist in your organisation? How do you tend to find this information out? What examples can you share of removing these barriers for managers keen to learn? Whose role is it to remove those barriers do you think? L&D, HR, Line Managers, IT, someone else?
