Learners in management education courses feel frustrated about implementing the new learning from their courses and often express the thought that their boss should have been there. The management style and climate set by the learner′s supervisor can be a powerful deterrent. To address this issue, it is recommended that the Human Resource Development professional should develop a partnership with the learner′s supervisor. A seven‐step process is outlined which leads to a strong partnership with the learner′s supervisor and increases the transfer of learning from the classroom to the workplace.
