    Overview

    Congratulations! You are the supervisor….the manager…the foreman…the lead...the boss. You are no longer just the doer. You now have the responsibility to get things done by working through and with other people, without doing it all yourself. You are (or have been) embarking upon one of the greatest   challenges (and transitions) you will ever make in your professional life. In short, you have been put in a leadership position. You have a choice:  will you choose to be “the boss” or will you accept the challenge of becoming a leader?
