    The focus will be for students to provide Goodwill with an “outsiders” perspective on the Success Coach program.  Evaluate its value (ROI) to businesses through employee retention increases, bring suggestions of additional “value added” services that might be incorporated into the program.

    Suggested Deliverable:

    provide a “consultants” view of the Success Coach services with ideas and observations for growth.
