Formerly known as the Supervisor Network, The Supervisory Collective a.k.a. The Collective is a social learning community for supervisors, managers, lead workers, department/division heads, and those who lead cross-functionally. This is not a course, instead it’s a space for members to connect, share their experiences, build their expertise, support one another, and deepen their knowledge. We do this through inquiry, collaboration, and facilitated discussion.
