Coaching and Motivating Faculty: A Bootcamp for Department Chairs

ONLINE BOOTCAMP

Coaching and Motivating Faculty: A Bootcamp for Department Chairs

 

September 30 - October 28, 2020

Learn and practice coaching and motivating strategies to help ensure faculty success at every career stage.

Overview

Helping faculty members to increase productivity or teach effectively – no matter where they are in their careers – is a key role of any department chair. Assistant professors in your department likely need support in charting their tenure journey, while full professors might need a push to cultivate their mentoring and leadership skills. You know you have a role to play as coach and motivator, yet you’ve likely received little training on HOW to play it.

Join us online for a 4-week intensive bootcamp to hone your skills in coaching and motivating faculty at every stage to build a high-functioning, productive academic unit. As part of a small cohort of department chairs, you will learn and practice both proactive and responsive measures to help ensure faculty success. You will also receive one hour of individual coaching with an Academic Impressions certified coach to build your capacity.

 

Who Should Attend

If you are a department chair or program director, this bootcamp will help you strengthen your “inner coach”. You will leave with a solid sense of how to define, develop, and make visible your coaching and motivating practices.

 

What You Will Get

In this virtual bootcamp, you will get:

  • Five 3-hour live sessions to learn and practice key concepts with other department chairs
  • A workbook with reflection questions for each session to build self-awareness around key concepts
  • 1 hour of individual coaching from an Academic Impressions certified coach to help you apply the key concepts learned within your department
