Please join us for a two-hour interactive, highly informative Wayfind Career Workshop. We will introduce you to a comprehensive model for career planning utilizing the Highlands Ability Assessment. This workshop will help you understand how you are hardwired and where you may thrive in school and career. Now, instead of thinking in terms of only “what I like,” you can see what you are truly good at. Many use this system to help decide on college majors, first jobs, and to overcome school or job “option overload.” Location in 5T, space limited! Please contact us to register and learn more.
A 2.5 hour assessment will need to be completed in advance of the workshop. Cost is $180 per person which includes the cost of the test.

CAREER. EDUCATION. SUPPORT
Everyone is born with inherent abilities that make certain types of tasks preferable to others. For that reason, people are most fulfilled in their careers when they find an environment that allows them to work primarily from their gifts and their natural talents. The Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) is an objective way to assess what those abilities are in a virtual, online format.
For some, talents are specialized, such as a gift for music or design, or a gift for theoretical thought. For others, talents may be more generalized, such as a talent for leading teams or the abilities that make teaching, selling or writing easy.
But does it matter if you know what your natural abilities are? Can’t everyone learn skills and improve their job performance, regardless?
There’s no question that we can all improve in different areas and acquire skills. But it takes a tremendous amount of effort to do something well for which you are not naturally suited. You will achieve fewer results and far less satisfaction doing work that doesn’t align with your natural talents, gifts, and abilities. For individuals, this means longer, more frustrating hours with fewer rewards; for organizations, this means falling short of attaining maximum productivity.
WayFind now offers The Highlands Ability Assessment & Whole Person 4-Step Method.
