Managerial skills learnt in the classroom can never match those learnt from experience
It’s true that the Managerial skills learnt in the classroom can never match those learnt from experience. For some people, what we learn in schools, colleges are never made use of the in real life experiences.
- The managerial skills taught in classroom are too theoretical for any real life scenarios.
- They are not taught how to handle pressure, stress etc.
- There are many scenarios which obviously cannot be covered in few months of curriculum.
- In a practical experience we meet different people, learnt different things.
- Managerial skills in theory are very “generic”. This is not the case in case of real life experiences.
- In real life, depending on the work environment and people, one needs to change the way work can be managed.
It will be unfair to pass judgment that Managerial skills learnt in the classroom can never match those learnt from experience.
- It is a known fact that most of the business tycoons have studied from the top B schools.
- What is learnt in classroom may not completely match with real life scenarios, however, the basics of any manager are patience, ability to motivate and manage a team.
- Such basics are always experienced in real life, although in different forms.
What really matters is, how well a manger can handle his company. If the company employees are happy, it does not matter what he learnt in classroom is being made us of or not. A key to any good manager is to motivate the Employee and consider their personal issues.
