Third Thursday Workshops
Whether it be coach, change agent or compliance officer, we know that supervising people requires a diverse skill set. Third Thursday Workshops are a monthly offering that will cover a diverse range of topics that are relevant to anyone in a supervisory role. They will be presented in a variety of formats, such as watching a webinar or listening to a subject matter expert.
This is also a great opportunity to network with your peers to share best practices and ideas.
