People being told doesn't strike me as a "learning approach". I am also
not convinced that people need to see "better benefits to them in the long
run". Certainly not on any one-for-one model.

What is consistent with intelligent beings and organisational learning, is
that people need to be able to understand or make sense of what is being
proposed. This is a learning and development process rather than a

I maintain that what people want is a future that they can value and
participate in - not "better benefits".
