How does Electives curate instructors?

Electives instructors are real people sharing real-life experiences and leadership lessons. They give valuable advice as they tell stories and express feelings people are often afraid to share.

We source and vet traditional and nontraditional instructors with a proprietary, multi-step process designed to ensure an experience people will love.

  1. Community sourcing: We source instructors through top-of-funnel research, word of mouth and referrals.
  2. One-on-one interviews: Our learning experiences team interviews all prospective instructors to ensure their authenticity, while confirming their content and teaching styles align with the Electives mission and our current needs.
  3. Pilot classes: The prospective instructors that are approved to move forward then teach a pilot class. The Electives pilot community provides qualitative and quantitative feedback, helping determine whether or not we add the instructor to our platform. The Electives pilot community includes employees from all of our client partners.
