In this interactive session maintenance and operations managers/supervisors will identify the issues that discourage front line staff from joining the supervisory ranks. Participants will help to frame issues and identify ways to overcome the objections that some front-line staff may have to moving up in their careers. Discussion of current and best practices and suggestions from colleagues in the room will provide for lively conversation and practical solutions.
