This is one main reason why drafting skills are poor.
However ambition is not lacking and short cuts are adopted by asking senior members to draft basic letters.policies etc.
Very few put up a draft and ask for views/corrections etc.
I keep advising querists to read bare Acts and in many of my replies post extract of Bare act with /sections concerned to encourage reading habit.
Bare reading of the Act itself gives answer to 50% of queries here.
Ability to tackle co workers, subordinates bosses is a skill which develops by interaction, cooperation and genuine sense of friendship.
HR people need to move out of office ,read all relevant Acts, meet people on shop floor and understand how their function meshes with overall functioning of establishment.
Quick fixes are no solution to learning the ropes of the job.

Learning is still a part of me, despite crossing the 60's of my life !
Learning should be along with Earning... Just an addition of L !

I agree with your sentiments. Another reason for this dependency culture is that there are too many "do gooders" that readily answer such queries (Sometimes, based on assumptions and not even asking for full information on the scenario).
