Lifestyle First: Understanding the Humanitarian lifestyle

The world is fast-changing, so let’s shift away from a traditional mindset of life + work.

Find Your Grind brings a lifestyle-first approach to social and emotional learning and career readiness

Students need more than a list of outdated job titles that match a personality type. Instead, they need a framework that changes the way they see themselves in the changing landscape of work.

Find Your grind

Our curriculum, rooted in Social Emotional Learning and reflective practice, helps learners develop greater awareness, gain exposure to careers and industries, and begin the process of designing their ideal lifestyle.

The Find Your Grind curriculum focuses on shifting the traditional mindset.

We’ve been taught to think of the job we want, acquire those strengths, then somehow fit in our lifestyle around that job.

Instead of answering the question, “what do you want to do when you grow up?” Let’s start answering the question “who do you want to be?”

This mindset shift all starts with Flipping the Funnel and getting to know yourself—what lifestyle you want to live, what strengths you have, and what job matches both.

The Humanitarian Lifestyle

They are easy to talk to and make people feel valued. 

Humanitarians are dedicated to improving others’ quality of life and inspire those around them to volunteer their time, resources, and efforts toward the same causes. They are unique souls with a desire to make the world a better place.

The Entertainer Lifestyle

Learn how Entertainers balance their energy on and off the stage and in and out of the spotlight.

Entertainers have a captivating nature that charms a room! They love to make others happy and can socialize effortlessly. They are often referred to as “the life of the party” but also need downtime — alone, and away from the spotlight.

Entertainers crave positive feedback, energy from others, and affirmations, but are also independent and possess a strong sense of self. At times, this strong sense of self is faced with constructive criticism or feedback from others. Given that Entertainers are centerstage, discerning constructive feedback from noise is one of the greatest skills they master.
