I spent about 10 years in chemical manufacturing as a chemist, but in 2017 decided to make a slight change to work in hospital laboratories. I ended up choosing immunohematology, aka the blood bank after thru hiking the Appalachian Trail.
I have been working in this field for almost 4 years and have recently acquired a position of a shift lead for a major hospital (1300 beds). I have been at this hospital for almost 2 years and have generally found the current leadership team to be punitive, micromanaging and vindictive. It is in fact my experience under this management that makes me want to pursue management because I know that I could do better.
I am looking for some recommendations on books or materials around being an effective and supportive manager. Thanks!
