Supervisor Resources

The Way We Lead

We acknowledge that skilled leadership is a practice developed with time and effort. The Senior Leadership Team commits to the following six practices and thirteen SLCC-specific behaviors as The Way We Lead at SLCC. This hybrid, foundational course includes definitions, short readings, videos, reflective questions, leadership skills, and other resources. Together, each of the six modules will provide you with the information and skills that you will need to be a successful people leader. (approx. 8 hours to complete).

SLCC Check Ins

Check ins are a chance to discuss the team member’s priorities, obstacles, and solutions in real time, while the work is ongoing. It is a conversation to see where you can lend support to the work and your employees’ wellbeing.

Two questions a supervisor can ask during a check in:

  1. What are your priorities this week?
  2. How can I help?

This frequent and real time check-in will help you with your more formal GPS conversations. We highly recommend them!


Continuous Feedback, Coaching and Development

We encourage on going conversations between you and your team regarding expectations and their development. Your conversations may be done through one-on-one conversations or other methods of “check ins” covering the following:

  • Recognition for projects or items that are going well. Refer to The Way We Lead for SLCC’s shared leadership practices.
  • Coaching can be an effective tool to approaching a change at work, understanding team dynamics, or increasing communication with others. Consider engaging with a coach.
  • Provide specific feedback on how to increase performance through goal setting and clear expectations.
  • Share ideas regarding career development, professional development, or interests.
