“SUNY, Old Westbury, is fortunate to have a very engaged and involved School of Business Advisory Board. Several of the members are proud alums and routinely offer internship and employment opportunities to our students. During our meetings it was identified that our students could benefit from soft skills training that showcase the education and abilities of our students to potential employers. Based on the “Secrets of the Young and Successful,” by EYP creater Jennifer Kushell, the Advisory Board and our faculty evaluated the “Exploring Your Potential,” program for our students. We decided to pilot the program which is being sponsored by the School of Business Advisory Board. This is an excellent example of a Missional innovation that engages our students, alums, faculty, and industry practitioners, in increasing the impact of the education received by our graduates.”

“Our students’ final assignment is writing a reflection paper sharing the tools learned in the course, including EYP. Students not only enjoyed the modules, but many experienced very deep self-reflection and found new motivation.”

“It's clear that Exploring your Potential is going to continue to evolve in response to the changes in the career market. And is oriented to help students learn to do that as well.”

“When online instructors plan out a new course, they need to find the best combination of tools to reinforce the core concepts of the course. Finding the appropriate tools to fit is often a challenging task. When offered the opportunity to use the Exploring Your Potential Career Readiness (Exploring Your Potential) in my online Business Communications (BCOM) course, I quickly agreed to pilot the program. The Exploring your Potential program has proven to be a great enrichment tool. It closely aligns with many of the core career concepts of the course bringing more depth to the content.”

TeresaBusiness Communication Instructor, University of Mississippi

“What does Exploring Your Potential mean for us, and for me personally? It has really hit home how much there is a gap in higher education. And all of education. A gap in going beyond content, and really making sure, that through an educational process, we include how to be a better person, how to be an community citizen, a global citizen, how are we ethical, how do we meet our promises, what is our brand promise to the commitments we make in the world? How can we be the best assets to our employers, our community, our world, our families? And that's really what Exploring Your Potential is doing in such eloquent and elegant experience.”

Denise M. LucyProfessor of Business and Organizational Studies and Executive Director of The Leadership Institute

“The advice I learned from Exploring your Potential inspired and motivated me to get out there more, apply for jobs and seize opportunities. It gave me a greater sense of confidence when interviewing, and helped me clarify why I wanted a supply chain job in the automotive industry. Four months after I completed the program, I landed a job at Tesla!”

“When I first participated in the Exploring Your Potential virtual bootcamp, I was unemployed and looking for a job. The Exploring your Potential classes improved my self-confidence and helped me get hired into to my position now! Today I work at a Cancer Hospital in Brazil and we recently traveled to USA to visit hospitals like Johns Hopkins, do some benchmarking, and take part in a conference. What more can I say? Exploring your Potential makes the difference in our lives!”

“The thing I liked most about Exploring your Potential was the further level of thinking that many of the exercises developed… digging deeper into yourself and finding out new traits, body language, and attributes that you exercise in everyday activities that you have no idea you did in the first place.”

—MathewBusiness Communication Student, University of Mississippi
