One of the main causes of burnout is unhealthy collaborative dynamics within the culture of the workplace. In particular, within education, when educators feel isolated from their peers and administrators, they report higher levels of stress and frustration. Our approach to collaboration is to bring people back together on a human-level and teach the skills necessary to have a healthy relational culture.
The skills we focus on are:
How to build relational awareness
How to have difficult conversations
How to develop the necessary empathy
How to understand your own story
Our approach to one-on-one mentoring is based on the theories and practices of Cognitive Coaching and Leverage Leadership. We believe in using goal-oriented self-reflections to drive improvement. We also believe in the essentials of balancing support and accountability in any mentoring relationship.
