The ABC of Supervising Others
Back This workshop is for those people who are new supervisors or who are interested in a supervisory position, as well as those who are lead hands or part-time supervisors without a great deal of authority. 

This workshop is designed to help you overcome many of the supervisory problems you will encounter in your first few weeks as a boss. Dealing with the many problems a new supervisor encounters isn’t easy but it doesn’t have to lead to discouragement.
