Episode 40 - (SUPERVISION) Supervisor's Book Club, pt 3

It's our final episode in Supervision September and we saved the best for last.  How to give your supervisees feedback! How to make work fun! Plus horror stories of the times we all utterly failed at supervising.  And, of course, Diana gives a bunch of "Lost" spoilers.  Because talking about great serialized television is the best way to let your staff know that you're a cool supervisor.
