This research examined perceptions of a Building Leadership Team (BLT) regarding the school climate, collegial relationships, camaraderie, and team-building skills among certified faculty. Participants' perceptions changed from resistance accession once a clear understanding of authentic collaboration developed through five job-embedded professional development sessions. The results from the action research project provided teachers and administration with information to improve and model effective cooperative and collaborative practices to support a positive and effective school climate for all stakeholders.
