DESCRIPTION:
Focus is on understanding dynamic issues in the supervisor-supervisee relationship: the intrapersonal, the interpersonal, and the system issues that can lead to tension, stress, frustration, and eventually, morale problems, low productivity, and dysfunction in the agency, program, or workplace.
