People in different organizations train for years on the job and many employees go into debt for college and other professional bodies training. People work day and night even on weekends to meet up with target set for themselves and the ones set by organizations. People do all these things to make themselves, relevant and probably as a mean to an end i.e. personal development. It is note-worthy that in spite of all these personal efforts on the part of the people, it is very clear that organizations do not do enough job in developing and promoting their most important resource (the people). This brings us to the issue of what i.e. takes to develop people. Developing people goes beyond sending someone to training class. It takes more than hard work on the part of employees. What development takes are people that can be down to earth. That is, persons from Chief Executive Office's (CEO) offices to the mailroom, people who are willing to listen and to help their subordinates and colleagues.
