Taking the time to teach

Written by Mark Breslin

In a high pressure workplace the learning environment can be killed off by pressing urgency and lack of patience.  When you were starting off in your career, did people take the time to teach you how to do things?  Did they show you the right way?  Were they patient; or did they seem irritated by the task? 

Teaching takes time and – with certain people – it may sometimes seem to take a lifetime.  But teaching someone to do a job or task properly will have a lasting business benefit.
