USGS Supervisory Development

Promoting a culture within the USGS that recognizes, supports and honors supervisors for the crucial role they play in ensuring the excellence of our science.

The program strives to develop supervisors who…

  • believe people are as important as science
  • are equipped with a “moral compass” and well-developed leadership skills
  • are strong communicators with the ability to promote teamwork, address conflict and give constructive feedback
  • know the “rules of engagement” for supervisors at USGS
  • are not afraid to make tough decisions and can balance the need to be “Mr Nice Guy” with the need to protect the integrity of USGS
  • routinely hire the right person for the job, communicate clear expectations to their employees, develop their employees’ potential and motivate them to do their best work
  • are credible in dealing with the science of USGS
