Responsibilities of Leadership

Montgomery College employees in supervisory positions are the foundation of college leadership, and their role carries several additional responsibilities.

First and foremost, it is important for supervisors to lead by example. By working ethically and demonstrating high standards for self and others, you support and encourage a civil and professional work environment.

When establishing and maintaining their unit, supervisors need to set clear expectations and discuss those expectations with employees so they have an adequate understanding of our Code of Ethics and Employee Standards of Conduct. They must make sure to provide access to resources and strive to promote a culture where employees feel comfortable asking questions and voicing concerns.

College leaders should also continually work to encourage the development of personnel, acknowledge and retain competent personnel, and seek ways to sustain a high level of morale within their units.

Remember, it is never right to retaliate or tolerate retaliation against any employee for raising concerns that he or she believe to be true.
