As leaders in our organizations, there are actually three “hats” we wear along the continuum of supervising, mentoring and coaching. Our ability to shift our approaches to the people we oversee from one of these to another is critical to developing and retaining our workforce. Sometimes, we blend these roles or move in and out of them in one conversation. The purpose, message, and sound of each are different, and all are important. Sometimes it is hard for those who supervise to make time to fill the other two roles, but a vigorous work team requires that we do all three and know which “hat” to wear and when. This workshop will explore these three critical roles and suggest effective strategies for implementing all three. Case study examples will be used to apply the concepts.



  1. Discern among the roles of supervisor, mentor and coach and identify which is appropriate based on the situation.
  2. Describe strategies to supervise, coach and mentor
  3. Apply the strategies to real life situations of leadership
