Helping students identify and pursue career-oriented goals is at the heart of management and marketing professor Angela Passarelli’s work. And, as the new director of research for the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, she hopes to elevate that work around the world and at the College of Charleston.

“Coaches, through asking provocative questions and listening deeply and creating reflective space, help individuals engage in a self-directed learning process,” says Passarelli, who implemented the School’s Master of Business Administration leadership coaching program in 2018.

“I think the College could be a place that’s known for advancing work in this area, a place where other faculty come to see what we’re doing because we do it so well,” she adds.
