Management in the UK

It is not uncommon in the UK for managers to be the cause of strife, stress and discontent at work rather than the providers of solutions. The reason is that too many are not trained in management before they are promoted and bad habits tend to become embedded. Management can be defined as 'the achievement of results through the efforts of others'. That being so, the ability to read and motivate 'others' is a critical part of management. In Germany it is common to put management training in before promotion and it is a great pity that we have not learned from their experience.
