Acting as your own manager

High school students may not be intrigued by the headline “Why People Really Quit Their Jobs.” But this article reveals that adults frequently quit their place of work when their jobs aren’t enjoyable, their strengths aren’t being used, or they just aren’t growing in the form of learning, mastery, career progress, etc. And it shares advice for managers to help rectify those ills. Students can use those findings not just to evaluate whether they’re getting enough back from their chosen activities, but also to craft the kind of school and activity life that will keep them happy, engaged, and excited about college. And best of all, students can act as their own managers and embrace just about all of the recommendations.
