"I do not have time on development; I have my work."
Most of the managers expressed this as the barrier for developing others. The underlying cause for this expression is how we look at the position. Even after elevating from individual contributor to lead with responsibility for the team, we think of self-contribution only.
If you start to look at your positional success as 50 % development of others, 50 % of the individual contribution, then your perspective will change about your responsibility towards developing others.
"Development is HR functional activities."
Some of us have a misconception that the HR function should take care of people development. In my opinion, HR function can only facilitate the environment for development, the immediate supervisors/ managers only can understand his teammates in a better way on the development aspects, and he must be the owner for development.
All other functions play a supporting role only.
“People are not picking up; they are not interested.”
This expression is also related to the compassion and care a team leader display towards the team. Each people require different methodology of teaching or communication. When the lead does not equip enough to learn the different communication process and eventually lose the patience to develop others.
The point is how you are looking at your job and people makes a difference in your intention to develop others.
Sometimes, an organizational environment is also not conducive for spending time on the development of people.
However, it is a primary responsibility of managers/leaders to develop the team and through them to deliver the result for holistic growth.
The action point is to look at your perspectives about people, your position and development aspects!
