WinningWise founder and president Robyn Clark as well as consultants Lauren Frank and Emma Knudsen introduced our proprietary career development and personal growth platform, GrowWise.
A Little About WinningWise
WinningWise is passionate about fostering growth in three primary areas: leadership development, talent and career development, and organizational transformation. We offer leadership programs, executive coaching, and a unique virtual learning program called “GrowWise: A Personal Growth Lab.”
A Case Study for GrowWise
Let’s dive into a case study of a client named Toni. Toni has been recently promoted to VP of Talent. She’s passionate about talent development and aims to strategically demonstrate the business value of nurturing talent. Upon her promotion, Toni’s primary objectives were to identify top performers, assess talent strengths and weaknesses, and devise a strategy to bridge any gaps. While her initial talent review was well-received, she faced challenges in determining the subsequent steps and addressing queries from other managers.
Fortuitously, Toni discovers GrowWise, a virtual career development program designed to empower employees to take control of their career growth.
What really is GrowWise?
The program, presented by guides Danny and Robbie, offers a comprehensive career and leadership development experience. It emphasizes self-discovery, allowing participants to understand their strengths and areas of improvement. The program is structured with a personal dashboard, learning modules, notifications, and badges for accomplishments. It adopts a modular approach, with each module offering videos, interactive graphics, exercises, and readings to engage the learner.
One of the core concepts of the program is understanding individual needs, categorized into work, relationships, future value, and current value. Participants assess the importance of these needs and how well they’re met in their current roles. The program then guides them in identifying a development focus, which aligns with their individual needs. This focus is further explored in-depth, culminating in a personalized development plan.
How GrowWise Helped Toni
In Toni’s scenario, within 90 days of adopting the GrowWise program, employees actively discuss their career paths with managers. A year later, every employee has a meaningful development plan, leading to increased internal promotions and mobility. Two years later, the organization boasts a robust succession plan and improved employee engagement.
While compliance can mandate development planning, genuine growth stems from personal change and meaningful engagement. The GrowWise program aims to bridge this gap, ensuring that development plans are not just procedural but are genuinely transformative.
