Lifestyle First: Understanding the Entertainer 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 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.
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.
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 Entertainers represent 19% of learners that use Find Your Grind.
All learners using Find Your Grind receive a personalized learning experience unique to them, and for the Entertainers 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 delivers on – Self Awareness, Social Awareness, Career Awareness, and Action Awareness.
