Leadership in the Trenches – 1

In any organization there are first level leaders. They may have the title Team Leader, Foreman, or Supervisor. These first and middle level leaders are the key interface between the business and its employees “in the trenches”. They are an important link for producing results.

Unfortunately, many of these critical leaders are left to learn leadership skills by trial-and-error which can create significant problems, and missed opportunities.
