The Leadership Report Card

Here are some needs and expectations one might have of a supervisor. Use the two columns below to say (a) how important each particular need is to you, and (b) how well the supervisor named below meets that particular need or expectation.

Score on a 0-5 scale, where a 0 means that the need is not important to you at all, and a 5 if it is extremely important. Similarly, rate the supervisor 0 if that need is not being met at all and a 5 if it is being fully met (considering its importance).
