Management Interest Group Meeting (5/1/19)

Meeting Information
From Chabha Shams, group facilitator:

For this meeting, we will be discussing the book The 15 invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell.
Please read chapters 1 and 2.
I (Chabha) will email you questions for our discussion on Monday, April 29 - prior to our meeting hoping you would have read these two chapters. Our main focus is "GROWTH," which is a core component for leaders/managers. Please ensure your technology operates well to allow for an interactive session.
Please, let me know if you have access to the book and are able to read these two chapters.. the nature of our profession makes it easy to access these resources. But in case you can't, please let me know.
I hope to "see" you at our meeting and look forward to a productive and meaningful session."

The purpose of this group is to gain an understanding of principles of Management and Leadership, explore theories in change management, challenges and solutions to workplace conflicts, how to deal with change and resistance, how to motivate employees, etc.
