Supportive Manager 

Behavior Tracking

Research on behavior change has proven that behavior tracking is key to the success of implementing new learned behaviors. This activity download includes a notecard or lanyard version to help managers and supervisors set goals and track supportive behaviors for two weeks. Behavior tracking is beneficial for leader, supervisor, or managers looking to improve two types of support that can be provided to employees: family and personal support and safety support.
