SOUL utilizes a supervision model based on a balance of support and accountability. This model of supervision has been tweaked and refined over the past decade and we are proud to make it available as a tool to serve new and older organizations and their leadership! We have noted the crucial components of SOUL’s staff development model with a hope that these tools might prove useful to movement organizations broadly. Our hope is that other organizations that may be struggling with how to develop and sustain infrastructure will be able to learn from what we have documented and build on it. Take the Best, Leave the Rest! This document includes our take organizationally on topics such as:

• What is Empowering Supervision?
• Supervision as Leadership Development,
• Raising Critique, Reflecting on Feedback
• Supervising a Friend,
• Hierarchy and Democracy,
• Staff Member Orientation and Evaluation,
• Organizational Culture…
• And much much more!
• This tool also includes an Addendums section
   complete with templates to how we make our
   model work for us!
