What People Are Saying
Your inventory really has been a great job development resource for our clients, as many don’t really know what their strengths and areas for growth are or lack the vocabulary to express it. One of the things that we teach our clients is interviewing skills and many of them struggle in this area, as they are just entering the workforce and have never had to talk about themselves in that way before.Rachel Meeker, Covenant House
The style results are not only personally insightful for them but really help them to begin talking about themselves in positive and strength-based ways. It is also helpful for many of our clients in understanding the dynamics they have with supervisors, managers, teachers, family members, etc. in their life and how they can improve those relationships.
