Supervising individuals is a privilege, and supervising at Syracuse University is a role we take seriously and one in which we take great pride. As a new supervisor at the University, there are many opportunities for you to continue to develop your leadership style, knowledge and skills through various professional development opportunities. These opportunities will help you learn more about the University, learn what being a supervisor at the University truly means, learn best practices, and develop skills and competencies that will enable you to navigate through various projects, initiatives, oversight and/or difficult conversations that are a part of your responsibilities.

Gallup StrengthsFinder Team Workshop

In the StrengthsFinder Team Workshop, we use the Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0 book and the results from each team member’s StrengthsFinder assessment to discuss how each person can use their top five strengths to enhance their individual and team effectiveness. This workshop will help you and your team identify your strengths and create a culture where strengths thrive.
