About Exploring Your Potential
Exploring Your Potential™ (EYP) is a revolutionary new career planning system designed to help people explore today’s world of work and global opportunity.
Presented in partnership with Peregrine Academic Services and Bloomberg Businessweek B-School Connection, EYP helps people discover who they really are, what they want, challenges they may experience, and new opportunity pathways for success. The program delivers real-world, forward-thinking, practical advice that is designed to target each person’s individual needs.
Through engaging lessons, inspiring videos, worksheets, self-assessments, and critical thinking activities, EYP transforms uncertainty and doubt into confidence and clarity so people can realize their full potential. Material is presented in a highly absorbing, interactive online format, with video coaching throughout the program.
Exploring Your Potential (EYP) is grounded in concepts that address the global marketplace today—the volatility, the uncertainty, the rapid emergence of new fields, and all the possibilities as a result. For many, it changes how they see the world of work and opens them up to new avenues of opportunity, far beyond their existing resources and circle of influence.
The program is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times Best Seller Secrets of the Young & Successful by Jennifer Kushell, founder and CEO of Your Success Now and an internationally recognized thought leader on youth employment and entrepreneurship. Instructional content has been globally tested and validated to empower people and remove perceived career barriers.
EYP is divided into four courses:
Course 1: Discovering Your Options
Get a clear sense of who you are, what you want to achieve, what skills and experience you have to leverage, and what will truly make you happy. Then you can make it happen.
Course 2: Sculpting Your Value Proposition
You can have all the potential and talent in the world, but packaging what you have to offer strategically maximizes your opportunities. Give yourself the best shot.
Course 3: Selling Yourself
We’re all in sales. We all have to sell ourselves every day, especially when we’re looking for internships, jobs, or consulting projects, or even launching a startup.
Course 4: Activating Your Plan
Elevating your strategy will make you aim higher, expect more from yourself, and achieve more in return. Take your big new plans and put them into action. Great results await!
Welcome to a whole new path to figuring out what you want to do for work, how to do what you love, and what it takes to achieve success—by your own definition.
