Bravo!Brad Cleveland-President and CEO, Incoming Calls Management Institute (ICMI)It made me re-examine how challenging the new supervisors' role really is-and how so much of the center's success hinges on their ability to transition quickly and avoid the landmines inherent in the job. It's a "must-read" for every supervisor!Rhonda C. Proctor-Editor, Contact Professional magazine
