Hello Insight:

Career / Workforce Readiness

For young people Ages 11 – 23

What makes a great colleague, employee, or even manager? It’s all about SEL.

What are some common qualities of colleagues you love to work with? They’re capable planners, who can identify big goals and break them down to figure out how to get from Point A to Point B. They’re skilled collaborators and communicators, with the ability to take multiple perspectives into account and demonstrate empathy for everyone’s point of view. In other words — they have strong skills in social and emotional learning, or SEL.

Use Hello Insight: Career/Workforce Readiness to evaluate these SEL outcomes, get tips and tricks on boosting SEL, and take your program to the next level.

Capacities

SEL is a continuous, ongoing process in young people that involves developing many skills and attributes that are closely related, but distinct enough to be measured on their own. We call these “capacities.” Hello Insight: Career/Workforce Readiness reports on key capacities linked to future career and job attainment and success.
