Making Big Changes in 2012

Posted on | January 6, 2012 | No Comments

2012 is off to a fantastic start with two major changes. The short version is that I’ve accepted two opportunities that will allow me to help a lot more people align who they are with what they do for a living. Fittingly, I’ll also be better aligning who I am as a person with what I do for a living.

ACT: Director, Client Outreach – Mountain Plains Region

First, I’ve joined ACT, Inc. (you recognize the name in the context of college entrance exams) as the Director of Client Outreach for the Mountain Plains Region.  I’ll be using my problem-solving skills to help educators use all of the company’s assessment solutions to improve college and career readiness throughout the K-12 experience.  I’m very excited about this because (if you’ve been paying any attention to my work over the past decade) I’m passionate about embracing what I call “whole-brain” thinking. ACT had created some programs that go well beyond the standard left-brain academic assessment model into critical “non-cognitive” assessments (learning behaviors, habits, skills, etc.) that I believe have been largely overlooked. The opportunity to be part of a forward thinking organization will allow me to focus and improve my core strengths in an area I believe vitally important and is something I am blessed to accept.
