Advice to Management
Go to school or something, because just having technicain experience does not make you qualified to be a good manager. Also don't be affraid to ask opinions from your technicians, you don't always have to take there advise but at least it gives you some perspective on things that your unaware of, or don't have access to. Search internally for why your turnover rate is so high.
