What you will do
Essentially you role will be to support and empower participants in our corporate programs and within Thought Leaders Business School.
The structure of these programs is generally a combination of training days and follow-up coaching to embed the learning. You will be working with our corporate students following training so that they are able to implement what they have learned.
As part of our flipped classroom we have an onboarding process where students essentially learn our curriculum before they officially start the program. You’ll coach and support them through the onboarding so that when they start at their first Immersion, they are ready to go.
TLBS ‘no child left behind’
We currently do a reasonable job checking in with and supporting students when they seem to be falling behind, but we know this could be done much better. We anticipate you’ll be part of designing and implementing this process.
During the first quarter of the program many students can experience a sense of overwhelm. Your job will be to support new students so that they are able to embrace their experience and make the most of it from the get-go.
