IS THERE ANY SCIENTIFIC BASIS FOR THE WORK IT PROGRAM?

The personality assessment tool is based on research from psychologist Dr. Patrick Handley and has been effectively helping people for more than two decades.

HOW CAN STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM THE WORK IT PROGRAM?

The big question is, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” The sooner we answer that question, the sooner we can start preparing for that one, bright, specific future! There is a lot of competition for jobs today so a student who can pick a profession can also take the right courses, apply for internships, and even engage in job shadowing.

HOW CAN ADULTS BENEFIT FROM THE WORK IT PROGRAM?

The question is the same for adults as it is students, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Whether we got into the wrong career by making the wrong choices or find ourselves in a bad place because of a bad economy, it’s never too late to find the right path to professional success.

CAN I RECEIVE A PERSONALIZED SESSION OF THE WORK IT PROGRAM?

Sure! Lori has done some very successful sessions with professional teams, families, and even individuals. Often the ways in which participants learn about themselves helps the work or family group move forward productively.

WILL I LIKE WHAT I LEARN ABOUT MYSELF?

There are rarely surprises during a Work It Program. You really do know yourself but there may be a dynamic keeping you from expressing one or more parts of your personality. Sometimes, parents want their children to be just like them and don’t know how to handle a difference. Other times, people don’t know how to effectively express a trait or talent and erroneously think of it as a fault or liability in life and work.

IS ANYONE TOO YOUNG TO KNOW WHAT THEY WANT OR WHO THEY ARE?

Lori firmly believes that a 10 year old child knows what they want in life but it can be difficult to express that with a limited vocabulary and life experience. The Work It Program can bridge the gap between what a child dreams and the options available in the world. As Lori puts it, “It’s an incredible feeling, bringing someone back to that dream, whether they’re 13 or 31. I love giving them the tools of communication to sell that career path to their parents or so they can run with it to a new life.”

HOW DO EMPLOYERS BENEFIT FROM THE WORK IT PROGRAM?

The average employee lasts less than three years at any job. If an employer can extend that to seven or eight years, as has happened with past program participants, a business can spend less on hiring and training. Employer and employee can grow together for everyone’s benefit.

HOW DO SCHOOLS BENEFIT FROM THE WORK IT PROGRAM?

A focused child is a better student. Participants are energized by their action steps because they see themselves getting closer to their goals. They want to attend class not because they must but because it is a step they want to take toward a future they can envision.

Thomas Marlborough, CT

My business partners and I utilized Work It's assessment and training to understand each other better and work through conflict more productively. It was great to have an outside opinion looking in and is scary how accurate the test is in general. We were able to use the results as a strategic tool to determine job roles within the company and raised self-awareness of each other's personality traits to build a stronger company organization. Lori is highly recommended and truly was a life-saver! @ctbeertours couldn't have launched without you!

Praise for Lori Theriault and her business Work It! Lori is "The Teenager Whisperer"! She has tremendous insight and is a gift to those who know her and have worked with her. Lori worked with my 11 year old daughter recently and has given her the opportunity to discover her passion.
