This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.
Many managers who feel comfortable with a traditional command and control way of working will be reluctant to do anything which they fear might lessen their power or ability to control employees. They will cling to the view that their authority is best directed at telling the staff what to do rather than working with them in a more supportive way. Even those who concede there may be a benefit in changing to a more open, trusting, developmental way of working may feel they don't have the time to do anything other than lead by command and control for fear of endangering the bottom line. They will tell you their job is to “manage” rather than coach.
