How do we build trust with our students, families, and colleagues?
The progression goes like this:
Respect – I value you as a person.
Empathy – I feel what you feel; I see the situation from your prospective.
Compassion – I think and act in ways that show I understand and care.
Trust…earned with respect, empathy, and compassion over time.
Positional Power + Empathy = Compassionate treatment of others
