This session will raise awareness for the soft-skill responsibilities a manager needs to lead a team.

During this interactive session, we'll share caveats and real-life examples centered around team dynamics.

In addition, we'll share '"A-ha!" moments and observations from managing teams such as why respected > liked; solving subordinate problems is inefficient; and when micromanagement is acceptable. Lastly, we'll touch on ways to get better at managing people and staying on top of your game as a leader, such as investing in yourself and developing your advice-counsel network.
