In this set of 3 lectures we will cover (1) the common pyramid theory of business structure where the pinnacle is the top person or owner in charge and all levels below increase in number of employees, but decrease in level of knowledge or abilities. (2) Mentoring is a very important part of training and team building, but not everyone is a great mentor. Just because someone has been in a profession for a long time or holds a higher position on the pyramid does not mean s/he should be mentoring new employees. Should there only be one person training or supervising or mentoring? (3) Job satisfaction – a dream or a reality? We have different reasons for entering our careers; we’ll discuss paycheck vs. satisfaction vs. true interest in our profession. How will the outlook on your job affect your view of satisfaction? Are you a stakeholder or just there for the paycheck?
