Helping teens figure out their path in life is tricky. There are lots of job and education options out there, but less so in the way of guidance or opportunities to help them figure out how to choose the right one.
Amber Wendover provides individual coaching to teens to help them examine possibilities for their life after school. Her company, Thinking People Consulting LLC, also offers organizational development support, corporate training, workshops and other services to organizations, professionals and students.
We asked Wendover about her experience working with teens, and what she believes we can do to support them as they explore next steps.
Question: What is the biggest challenge facing students today as they try to figure out what they want to do after high school?
