Summary:
Being a manager involves tapping into changing patterns of work to find, hire, and get the most out of your team.  Significant changes in our environment in the past decade – mobile device proliferation, widespread use of sharing/collaboration apps, ubiquitous video conferencing, and growth of social networking –have had a profound impact on those responsibilities.  How we as managers recognize and respond to these changes can make us – and our teams –more or less successful.  Steven will share observations on the biggest changes, stories from his experience, and best practices for being an effective manager and leader.
