"I am here to help make your life better. YOU choose what you want to work on. WE work to get you there." This is something I said to a student one day and thought it made a lot of sense. I drew the quote on my whiteboard and it was re-pinned many times, so I decided to make a poster of it.
I hope you find this helpful in your office or classroom to encourage a collaboration and ownership.
