How We Help Our Customers

If you have been learning about work but haven’t been talking about a Customer, then you haven’t really been learning about work. We bet you have been learning about a job — a set of tasks — which you will perform as part of your work.

Jobs have a beginning and an end. Think of a chef, a stylist, an architect, or a doctor. Cooking a meal, cutting a person’s hair, designing a house, and even treating a patient are all jobs with a beginning and an end. A Customer needs a job done, and when the task is complete, the job ends.

But work is about agreeing to provide a benefit to a Customer in exchange for a reward. We call these benefits Value Provided. “Jobs” end, but value lives on.

We will help You, our Customer, do bigger and better work by showing you how to solve for X — your Work Model — for the rest of your life!

Where Are You With Work?

Everything you are preparing to do in life beyond school is the result of what you see in your mind. You have created mental models — visions of yourself in the future. Maybe you see yourself engineering the world’s fastest car, designing art exhibits for the Van Gogh Museumin Amsterdam, or becoming the mayor of your hometown. You may see yourself living in your own home, perhaps with a family of your own — or not! And your imagined future may be possible — if your method of thinking about life beyond school supports your vision.

This guide details the experiences of several students in a YouX class. The scenarios described are based on true events, though the people’s names have been changed. They are students like you, in schools like yours, and with teachers like yours. Yet the YouX class is like nothing you have ever experienced before.

You will learn about students who are in high school or are recent high school graduates, who came together because they wanted to learn a better way to make choices about life beyond school.

Because career planning . . . did . . . not . . . help. Which of the students in this YouX class sounds most like you?
