Manager's Toolkit

Manager's Toolkit

The Manager’s Toolkit is designed to help managers and supervisors accomplish many of their Human Resources related tasks more efficiently. If you have questions regarding the information provided in this Toolkit, or if you need additional guidance, please contact your HR Department Representative. We are here for you!

The performance management process at Teachers College includes setting goals and clear expectations, providing meaningful feedback and ongoing coaching, self-assessment by the staff member, and performance discussions mid-year and year-end.

Regular and meaningful discussions between supervisors and employees throughout the year lead to stronger performance, better communication and engaged staff. 

While it is important to follow the three stages of the process, an equally important part is to continuously check-in with staff and incorporate more informal, ongoing feedback conversations throughout the year. Regular and candid feedback can help create a culture where employees feel comfortable having an open dialog and seeking help and guidance.

Review the Performance Review Process section for additional information.
