Hotline Coaching allows CWRU faculty facing unique opportunities and challenges to receive short, quick-turnaround coaching from a professional executive coach to help them address and resolve a specific issue, opportunity, or problem.
Hotline coaching assists individual faculty to analyze and contextualize an emergent issue or opportunity, prioritize preferences, and initiate a plan of action for resolution of the issue. Hotline Coaching has been sought for career choice questioning, job negotiations, research supervision, and budget management issues.
One or two sessions of hotline coaching are available to all CWRU faculty on an as-needed basis.
Issues for which Hotline Coaching has been requested include:
considering a departmental chair position
assistance with preparation for a formal grievance
job negotiations regarding role as Committee Chair
research funding supervision and budget management issues
career choice questioning, and career development and planning issues.
ACES Hotline Coaching was established in February 2006 as an outcome of a University-wide meeting of women faculty that was convened by the ACES leadership. Women faculty from ACES and non-ACES departments asked the ACES co-PIs to create an ACES hotline for emergency-type coaching that would be available to all campus women faculty on an as-needed basis. As part of the institutionalization as ACES+ Hotline Coaching is now available to all CWRU faculty.
