Coaches establish productive relationships with educators in order to improve instructional practice and learning outcomes.


It’s not easy to build relationships in the workplace.  I think a lot of times, the workplace is competitive and focuses on quantity and quality of work, rather than some of the other intangible aspects of work like collegiality and collaboration. That said, I firmly believe that it’s important to take the time to build rapport with each person you interact with – whether it’s a brief 5 minute phone call or someone who keeps stopping by – as someone in an administrative role who faculty don’t necessarily need to seek out to do their job, my focus became not just fixing issues, but what can I do to make people come back?

Below you will find evidence, spread across four different subsections (indicators) of how I believe I am a collaborator where I work.
