Building Trust

How do we build trust with our students, families, and colleagues?

The progression goes like this:

RespectI value you as a person.

EmpathyI feel what you feel; I see the situation from your prospective.

CompassionI 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
