THRIVE: As a Summit team member you will participate in Thrive, Summit’s new personal success curriculum. Thrive is designed to empower you to succeed from the inside out. In our modern world many people experience compartmentalized success, they prosper in one area - while failing in another. We believe that success should not be compartmentalized but wholistic. Thrive combines classroom training, hands on application, and one on one life-coaching sessions.
You will start your day with Thrive Class. We all know that making real and lasting change can be a daunting task. The reason it’s hard for many people to truly change is that the methods most often used amount to little more than behavior modification, discipline, and a dose of self loathing. Thrive class takes a different approach, we begin with the internal work of the heart to identify roadblocks, negative perceptions, and limiting beliefs that will oppose future success. The goal of the curriculum is to move you from a place of striving to thriving.
Thrive one-on-one coaching sessions will help you; clarify your goals, create a plan of action, and establish metrics to track your progress. Ongoing assessment will provide you with insight as to what is working and what isn’t. Thrive Coaching is designed with you in mind. Want to launch a business? Looking to break through some personal barriers or work through an inter-personal issue? Coaching is a one-on-one time to assist you with your personal objectives.
