Management is a critical part of any business; joining the ranks of the management team requires new set of skills beyond simply performing a task or accomplishing a goal.
An efficient manager today must be equipped with skills to manage a diverse, talented, and mulch-generational group of professionals, often with limited resources, finances, and training.
