Facilitating a Management Transition Meeting
Turnover in managerial or supervisory positions happens frequently. This transition, when un-managed, may produce the following effects: a short range orientation; role ambiguity; reduction in openness of communication; and a general lack of knowledge about the future of the workgroup or department. This program addresses a facilitated method of managing supervisory changeover through a “transitional meeting.”
