This module is the first part in a three-part series. It has been designed to help you and the people who support you learn how to have a great working relationship.
The relationship between you and your staff can be confusing. People are paid to work with you. But it’s not a one-way street, and as this module will explain, you actually need to be equal partners.
This module features presentations from many leading professionals and self-advocates, including Patti Scott, Jeremy Donaldson, and Natalia Manning.
After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Understand what it means to be in charge and how to provide the people who work with you the support they need.
- Explain the role of support staff.
- Describe why you should be involved with “each other’s people.”
- Explain why good staff blend in and what that means.
