How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Founder ,

Grove Scuba

My day typically involves checking in students and certified divers in the morning and diving with them in the ocean in the afternoon.

Adaptive Supervisor ,

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Adaptive Program

My work changes by season, which I love. As a supervisor, a lot of my time is spent in the office. I handle all of the scheduling for our programs and I make sure all of the instructors are set and have everything they need. The first few hours of my work day are typically spent resolving all of the small issues and conflicts that arise each day. I also spend time planning out future trajectories for our programs. And finally, I get to spend time outdoors teaching some of our lessons.
