The World of LIFT
People, Behavior, & Transformation
This world goes beyond offering a helping hand. It’s about lifting people up in diverse personal and professional contexts, using your skills as an inspirational and agile leader to help them unleash their potential.
Think behavioral experiments, in-store observations, talent development and training, positive leadership, campaign and policy nudging, health and wellness interventions, and community service.
WHY THE WORLD OF LIFT?
Because the new world of work needs potential-seekers
When employees are the right fit for their job, they’re 2.5 times more productive and have higher retention rates (ValueBased).
Because companies must guide teams through change
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change” - Charles Darwin
It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do. We hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.
Below are examples of some of the exciting jobs in this world
