Coaching for Faculty

  • Do you thirst to reach your fullest potential?
  • Are you ready to let go of what is not working for you?
  • Are you eager to adopt new skills to propel you toward scholarly success?

If you said yes, then I’m here to help tenure-track and tenured academics.

What you can expect:

  • Step through the tenure process efficiently and with dignity
  • Get clear on your short and long term career goals
  • Control your work and non-work pressures
  • Recover from rejection and failure through resilient learning

How coaching works:

  • Schedule an initial conversation to listen to your story.
  • Define your coaching goals and measures of success.
  • Meet privately, virtually every other week for three to six months.
  • Experience a safe space to float fresh ideas and test out new practices.
  • Review your progress, hold you accountable and celebrate your wins.

Hear what faculty are saying:

I was stuck. Faculty, like students, are often reluctant to reach out for help. I know that in my case it took an enormous amount of gumption to meet you. But I’m so glad I did. You got me to think seriously about the need to say No to new commitments. And you encouraged me to advocate for myself. I found you to be wonderful, empathetic, wise, and incredibly helpful.

Of highest importance, Susan’s personality and style of engagement made it easy for me to connect with her and trust her guidance.  She is patient, eager to help and is full of helpful alternative ideas for addressing situations. One of the best parts was learning more about myself.  Leveraging my strengths and working to improve my weaknesses.  The one-on-one approach is key.
