We discussed what it means to be a manager: managerial responsibilities and qualities, the dichotomy – if it exists – between leadership and management, leadership styles and roles and which of them we gravitate towards (and which we try to avoid).

To crown it all, we applied Lewin’s force field analysis to our own contexts! Good times indeed.
