Topics on Tap – Managing and supervising people in the workplace
In 2016, we are starting a new discussion series, “Topics on Tap”, which are informal small group discussions focused on challenges we face as we transition into new roles. No experts, no homework, just discussion with real people who have to cope with new responsibilities during job transitions. Our first discussion was on managing and supervising people in the workplace.
