Today, members of CSN facilitated an exercise at the Lab Management Community of Practice meeting. Our discussion was focused around what great managers do or provide to ensure a safe, effective work environment for employees and students to work in and thrive. There was a lot of great conversation around experiences people have had with good AND bad leaders in their workplaces — and some resources were discussed that might assist many people in leadership roles in doing their job.
If you are interested in having CSN facilitate a similar exercise with your management team, please contact us! We are happy to share information we know about the resources, trends and practices across campus to improve managers’ skills and abilities in this area.
