Thought of the Week - 3/09/09

“If you would attain to what you are not yet, you must always be displeased by what you are. For where you are pleased with yourself there you have remained. Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing.” -- Saint Augustine

As servant leaders, we must be continuously asking ourselves how we are doing as a supervisor. We need to ask ourselves how we can be better at what we do. We need to identify what changes we need to make in order to better serve both our staff and our organization. At Rising Sun, we like to ask ourselves: “How would I like to have me as a supervisor?”


In addition to our self assessment, there are also a number of ways in which to seek feedback from others. Most obviously, we can simply ask them directly how we are doing as a supervisor. We can meet with our staff, either one-on-one or in groups, and ask them for feedback on how well we are meeting their needs. We can ask them if there is anything else we can be doing to better support them. We can even ask them what they would do differently if they were the supervisor.
