Collaboration - your team members are also persons

George Eliot said,

“what do we live for, if not to make life less difficult for each other”?

This is an interesting one to ponder as a team, as so often the least strong part of our entire practice is what we do for each other.

We may serve children beautifully, and be warm and responsive to families, but to the teachers and management we spend our days with? Whether we class these people as friends, or merely ‘colleagues’, sometimes there is very little that is collegial about how we treat each other.
