During the month of June, I facilitated ‘Communicating as a Supervisor,’ one of the five classes in the Supervisory Excellence Program of HAL University. There were 12 attendees who were Petty Officers and supervisors from various departments on board. Offered from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Hudson Room on board the Oosterdam, the attendees were split into four groups (three people per table) which made it perfect for the class activities and discussions. Refreshments such as coffee, tea, water and cookies were also available. The feedback was great and the attendees learned a lot from the course material and from each other.
