Find Your Wings!

Find Your Wings® is our adaption of A New Way to Think About Work® for youth and those new to the world of work. It is both a character-building and career development model.


Heartfelt thanks for last night’s terrific program. It was just what those in attendance needed. One of the participants was speaking to me afterwards about a job offer he had received; he actually said “that is my dignity talking”. The best measure of a program to me is that attendees immediately start using the information as applied to their own situation. You were truly a success. I really like this model of thinking about work. Too many people go immediately to the dollars and cents and this helps reroute that thinking. I hope you are having fun unveiling this concept to different groups and hearing them “get it”. Thank you for sharing your expertise and stories with GetWorks.
