Lifestyle First: Understanding the Educator lifestyle
The world is fast-changing, so let’s shift away from a traditional mindset of life + work.
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 Educator Lifestyle
Learn how Educators build relationships with leadership and inspiration.
Educators are natural leaders who use their influence to inspire the next generation. They can’t help but constantly think about the next steps and organize a plan of action because Educators believe in an optimistic future. Educators know how to listen in order to find common ground. This strategy helps Educators build trust with others who seek guidance.
Educators have an unmatched passion and knowledge of their subject matter. They have the drive to think outside the box and find ways to communicate effectively with lots of learners. Their ability to teach new concepts and simultaneously build community brings them joy. But the real gift for Educators is when they see others engaged and inspired to continue learning.
Educator Mentors & Careers in Find Your Grind
Find Your Grind’s network of mentors share real-life stories and personal experiences to humanize career exploration for students. We also have a diverse and growing library of careers for students to explore and find ones that fit with their skills and lifestyles.
Mentors and careers in the Education lifestyle include:
Patty Herrera – Montessori Farm School Director
Yemi Amu – Aquaponic Farmer
Sheela Mahdavi – Nutritionist
Every learner who experiences Find Your Grind takes our proprietary Lifestyle Assessment multiple times throughout the curriculum. We’ve collected thousands of responses from learners, and Educators represent 3% of learners that use Find Your Grind.
All learners using Find Your Grind receive a personalized learning experience unique to them, and for the Educators they’ll experience careers and mentors that are more highly associated with this lifestyle, resulting in greater learning engagement, and improved learning outcomes across the four capabilities that the Find Your Grind Future Ready Framework deliver on – Self Awareness, Social Awareness, Career Awareness, and Action Awareness.
