Perhaps you've worked for one or worry that you are or could become one. It's a completely different skill set, so it's understandable! Here's the good news: management is a skill you can learn and at which you can excel. Even if you aren't a manager yet, start learning now for how to effectively manage and work with teams. In this virtual workshop, Joanne Kamens, Executive Director of Addgene, shares her best practices for leading teams effectively.
