Introduction

This is a different, valuable, non-traditional approach to staff development. While most workshops focus on developing corporate effectiveness, "Essential Life Skills Workshops" enrich and enhance skills on a personal level. The results are increased effectiveness and competency as an individual contributor in the workplace. The skills learned will last a lifetime.

 

What is a skill?
A skill is an ability or inner power to communicate, solve problems, and/or provide solutions or results. It is acquired through training, practice and experience. A skill facilitates performance, the accomplishment of tasks, and general learning in physical and mental tasks for oneself or others. A skill results in aptitude and competence that leads to becoming an expert or specialist. The operating words that indicate a skill are “how to”.
