Faculty Coaching

Whether you're feeling stagnant in your career, aspiring to step into a leadership role (or reinvigorate an existing one), working to enhance your research and teaching endeavors, or simply seeking a healthier work-life balance, the College of Sciences coaching program is designed to help you, as the expert in your own life, gain insights and achieve your goals.


What is coaching?

Coaching is a process that supports personal growth and development.  Unlike mentoring, it does not assume differential knowledge or experience.  Unlike therapy, there is not an assumption that anything needs to be repaired.  The objectives of each coaching session are set by the client, and the coach helps explore challenges and options and set a course forward.  For the chemists reading this, the coach is like a catalyst, reducing the activation energy required to get to your desired endpoint!
