Training staff with technical, theoretical, and practical knowledge is not enough. Avoiding isolation means adding value in training by adding concern and sensitivity. So, in both the business context and within their area, they are capable of reasoning, analyzing, exploring options, and identifying causes and consequences. Staff training should be complemented by a training approach.
