High School Potential Reach Timeline

Our Approach

Potential High School Timeline

We developed getInsights’ model from this basis; unique person determines career, not career determines unique person. Our model has successfully helped hundreds of students and is based on 4 key phases: Discover yourself, Explore and connect, Confirm your fit, and Plan & do.



Part I: Discover Yourself

Self Discovery is an important part of an individual’s journey. They must first understand their interests, personality, aptitudes, skills, values and other key areas before they can determine what type of work environment, dynamic, field and specialty they will enjoy. We spend a large part of our time with each individual in this stage to build the foundation for the future career planning.


Part II: Explore and Connect

Exploring what interests an individual has and then connecting what “real jobs” match an individual is essential to long-term career happiness. getInsights’ experienced coaches, unique model and great career resources assist individuals in how to further explore interests and connect to specific careers. Commonly known facts are that an young individual’s motivational level increases to explore certain activities as they are “connected” with peer groups or other influential people in their life. getInsights’ coaches help students become motivated to explore areas of interest by “connecting” them to college majors and careers of interest to them. Specifically, getInsights has developed 3 specific tools that we use to help individuals plan and follow through with their commitments. We focus on overcoming obstacles (Why can’t I do this?), fear of failure (Why not commit?), and planning (How will I get this done?). Most career planning does not incorporate this critical element to ensure individuals know what to fall back on when parents or coaches are not present.

Part III: Confirm Your Fit

Actual work experience in the career area of interest, is critical for a young individual to understand if they will enjoy the “idea” of a career they are interested in. getInsights has strong relationships with Corporate sponsors (see corporate sponsors) to give our students the opportunity on how to explore the “real world” of work prior to graduating from college or finalizing their career decisions.

Part IV: Plan and Do

As part of a student “Confirming their fit”, we strongly advocates that the classroom is very different than the “real world” experience of a job. We help our clients work through the investigation, planning and action required to give them the best possibilities of career “testing” their career choice.

High School Potential Reach Timeline

This timeline demonstrates our experience of working with students to highlight key events and how to successfully integrate the “being” or thinking about what students are actually “doing” through high school. For example, if a student is planning to go to college, they should be thinking about for what field of study prior to selecting an appropriate school.
