Lifestyle First: Understanding the Healer 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 Healer Lifestyle
Learn how Healers leverage their strengths to make the world a better place.
Above all else, Healers care about the emotional and physical well-being of others. Their empathy and exceptional listening and communication skills give them the precious ability to help people overcome tragedy. Their presence offers a sense of calm and reassurance.
Healers demonstrate a sincere and genuine interest in others, releasing a superpower that helps others feel comfort in sharing their aches, pains, trauma, and experiences. Healers have a unique generosity and care that is noticed and highly valued by those they help.
Healer 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 Healer lifestyle include:

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 Healer represents 2.25% of learners that use Find Your Grind.
All learners using Find Your Grind receive a personalized learning experience unique to them, and Healers will 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.
