Guthrie, James P.; Schwoerer, Catherine E.

A training needs survey was completed by 380 of 715 managers/supervisors in a state agency. Those in later career stages perceived less need for training in management, human resource management, communication skills; they reported lower levels of self-efficacy in training effectiveness and utility of training. There appeared to be a need to encourage positive attitudes toward lifelong learning and a nonthreatening environment for training. (SK)
