The Champion Performers Program

 

We established the Champion Performers Program to help Millennials 14 to 35 set and meet growth objectives in high school, college and the work place to launch a career. The objectives, if met, will help Millennials chart a career path, maximize their education, obtain targeted positions and manage a successful career journey.

 

We recommend that Millennials work with a Career Pathing Mentor and set and meet Champion Building Objectives together as a team. We will provide sample objectives to the Millennials and mentor.

 

The following is a four step outline of the Champions Performers Program.

 

Step #1 - Millennials will be placed in one of three groups:

  • The High School Millennial Group

  • The College Millennial Group

  • The Work Place Millennial Group

 

Step #2 -The Career Pathing Mentors need to review the Career Mentor Section on this website and prepare themselves to operate as a Career Pathing Mentor.  This calls for:

  • Taking all three competency surveys, reviewing score reports and learning the information off the score reports

  • Taking the assessments on three score reports and be familiar with how to use them with a mentee.

  • Reviewing all podcasts, especially number 14.

  • Reviewing the six books. PDF versions offered free.

 

Step #3 -The Career Pathing Mentor who works with a High School Millennial, College Millennial or Work Place Millennial should review the objectives recommended by The Champions Performance Program on the following pages and write out with the mentee a minimum of seven objectives each year. The objectives, if met, will help the Millennial grow each year so they can eventually graduate from school, find work and launch a successful career journey.    

                                                     

Step #4 - Millennials will receive a Champion Performers Certificate from their mentor if they meet their predetermined objectives each year. The mentor will decide if the Millennial met all the objectives and then will type out their name on the certificate at this station on the website.

 

We want Millennials to try and win a Champions Performers Certificate each year. We would recommend the objectives run from July 1 to July 1. 

 

Suggested Objectives by Year in School and While Working

We want the objectives set by the Millennial and mentor each year to be relevant, realistic, achievable, challenging and growth producing.
