How Educators Can Manage Change

Like it or not, change is inevitable. So why not use it to your advantage? In this episode, Dustin explains how educators can continue to pivot like they have the past 14 months but FranklinCovey, a global company specializing in organizational performance improvement, recently announced the acquisition of Strive, a San Francisco-based EdTech startup, which has developed and markets an innovative, state-of-the-art learning deployment platform.

The acquisition accelerates FranklinCovey’s ability to help clients predictably achieve employee behavior change at scale through its All Access Pass. Strive’s intuitive, social learning platform will enable seamless integration and deployment of FranklinCovey’s best-in-class content, services, technology, and metrics to provide highly engaging and impactful learning experiences for maximum impact.

“We are thrilled to have the Strive team join FranklinCovey, bringing with them their expertise in social learning and platform development,” said Paul Walker, FranklinCovey President and COO. “This acquisition enhances our ability to help our clients address challenges which require a change in human behavior at scale. The combination of our best-in-class content and services in our All Access Pass and the extensive capabilities Strive’s platform offers will allow for a seamless, engaging, and impactful user experience. And, additional diagnostics, analytics, and benchmarks will drive learning engagement, completion, and retention, for optimized learner and business outcomes.”

“Our mission at Strive is to help people and organizations achieve their potential,” said Will Houghteling, CEO of Strive and now Vice President of Product & Platform at FranklinCovey. “We’re thrilled to combine Strive’s learning platform with FranklinCovey’s unequaled content, solutions, distribution, thought leadership, and reputation to help millions of learners and tens of thousands of teams and organizations realize their potential.”

Strive’s capabilities will be integrated into FranklinCovey’s All Access Pass, which is an annually renewable pass providing passholders with unlimited access to FranklinCovey’s entire collection of best-in-class content and solutions. Its core content offerings are now available in 20 plus languages, in more than 160 countries. Passholders can assemble, integrate, and deliver content from 26 areas, in an almost limitless combination through various delivery channels — On Demand, Live-Online, Live-in-Person, and microlearning. Passholders also have exclusive access to an implementation specialist and additional add-on services, such as coaching, to ensure they are unleashing the full scope and power of the All Access Pass to achieve their key business objectives.

Since FranklinCovey launched the All Access Pass five years ago, annual subscription and related revenue has grown to nearly $100 million, making it one of the largest and fastest-growing subscription services focused on helping organizations successfully address their most important challenges which require behavioral change at scale. The acquisition of Strive brings new, cutting-edge capabilities that further enhance the value of the All Access Pass and drive increased impact and behavior change for clients.

Based in San Francisco, Strive was founded in 2017 by Will Houghteling and joined by co-founders Troy Cosey and Shane Chin in 2018. The company currently works with leading growth-stage and established tech companies to help them develop their emerging leaders. Strive’s social learning platform is like Noom or Omada Health for learning — combining content, coaching, community, and analytics to drive lasting behavior change. This expertly designed approach generates substantial results for clients: learning completion rates are dramatically higher than industry averages, and 91 percent of Strive’s learners and 100 percent of Strive’s customers say they would be disappointed if they could no longer use Strive.

“FranklinCovey is the world’s leader in helping companies address the people problems that matter most. We’re excited to add our solution and technology to build on that foundation,” said Troy Cosey, co-founder and Vice President, Sales & Customer Success at Strive, now Managing Director at FranklinCovey.
