I think I can safely say I'm the only entomologist here, although please feel free to prove me wrong :)
I recently (8 months ago) got a dream job managing a research station in the Midwest.
I am in charge of the undergraduate educational programs, a bird sanctuary, our website, risk management, and about 200 other things.
I've done pretty well managing the scientists and students, but I've run into a snag with two of my staff. I've got dueling passive aggressives, basically. Sigh.
I'm hoping for some ideas on how to try to get them turned around.
Feel free to offer suggestions!
So far I've had a great time doing "job shadows" with all my directs. I even learned to inseminate a cow a couple of weeks ago! :shock:
Again, I may be the only manager here that can make that claim. (or that wants to :lol: )
