Lethbridge College is a positive community workplace, known for its sports teams, Culinary Olympics team, and award-winning students and graduates. A significant drop in employee satisfaction occurred during the last five years as documented by two external surveys. Results suggested that collegiality might be a factor correlating to employee satisfaction. My research question asked how team successes in schools, where faculty deem existing collegiality as favourable, could support the broader development of collegiality at Lethbridge College. I determined faculty mental models surrounding collegiality and identified potential change initiatives to strengthen it. An online faculty survey, document review, and Deans' interviews contributed relevant data, adhering to Royal Roads University's (2011) Research Ethics Policy and the policies of the Lethbridge College Ethics Review Committee. My recommendations illuminated the evolution of an institutional definition of collegiality and five change initiatives that would contribute to higher employee satisfaction during a time of great change.
