Management Tools

To lead your team, you need the right tools and resources.

There are many definitions of leadership.  Most definitions contain elements of motivation, development, advising, inspiration and oversight.  The Human Resources office is dedicated to ensuring that supervisors have the tools and resources they need to successfully lead at DePauw.

The first step in providing leadership for your team is understanding the laws, policies and benefits that apply to your team members.  It is the responsibility of all supervisors to maintain a positive working environment, free from harassment or hostility, that promotes creativity and productivity while ensuring compliance with University regulations  and all state and federal laws.

At DePauw, your team could be comprised of staff colleagues or members of a faculty department.  You could have exempt (salaried) and non-exempt (hourly) employees that report to you.  Please use the resources provided here and contact the Human Resources Office at any time for additional assistance.
