CASE STUDY

BUSINESS NEED:

The Clayton County Schools Career, Technical and Agricultural Education Program offers curriculum across 36 different career paths leveraging people formally in those industries as educators to help bridge the connection between the students and the industry professionals. The charge was to enhance the perception of these 150 educators, empowering them to be influential industry experts and inspirational role models.

SOLUTION:

WrightNow Solutions facilitated one of its signature training classes, The It Factor: Showing up with Confidence, Presence, and Credibility, for their Professional Development day. This training class provides actionable steps on enhancing your leadership qualities while focusing on your in-person and digital presence.

OUTCOME:

The educators implemented new methods of being relatable and impactful with the students. They have created or improved their digital interaction motivating businesses to engage with their students based on a plan we provided in the class. Businesses and students are gravitating to these educators.

*** This same training class has been delivered to leaders from many Fortune 500 companies to increase employees’ promotability, influence, and executive presence.​

“WrightNow Solutions disrupted the way we traditionally deliver our professional development days and truly gave our educators practical applications to "be greater”. Our educators have implemented methods from their workshop to provide the ultimate classroom to career experience for our students. We are also confident our educators now have “The It Factor” needed to boost our business relationship with industry leaders.”
