Career Coaching is an effective method to inspire faculty to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching can be used to help faculty be more productive, set goals, and achieve those goals. In this workshop, we will focus on developing Career Coaching skills, such as asking powerful questions, so that you can implement these skills in working with your faculty.

Considerable time and resources are committed to recruiting and retaining the best faculty, and for each faculty member to be successful, school and departmental leaders are required to negotiate on their behalf. During this interactive session, you will learn the "dos" and "don'ts" of negotiating in academia and develop a tool-kit of tips and strategies for negotiating with institutional leadership on behalf of your faculty and yourself.

Please note that both workshops are geared towards department/division chairs, associate deans/vice presidents for academic affairs, faculty who are currently in, or aspire to be in, administrative roles, but are open to all faculty.

​Registration is required for all workshops.
