12 Universal Skills: The Beginner's Guide to a Successful Work

Price for 1

Product description

Taking the leap from the educational system to professional work life isn’t easy. And our society doesn’t support it very well. The necessary skills to not only survive but thrive are rarely taught in depth, neither in the school system nor at the workplace.

12 Universal Skills uniquely addresses this gap.

After retiring early from successful careers, the authors spent 3.5 years creating this book, involving 11 other top leaders and coaches from across the globe. The result is this book. Thoroughly researched – while still solidly planted in real-world experience – this is the most complete job skills book on the market, written specifically with career starters in mind.

In a unique framework, the 12 skills include self-regulatory skills, such as confidence, resilience, goal-setting, and self-awareness, and interpersonal skills, such as communication, teamwork, time management, networking, influence, and professional etiquette. Many of these are advanced skills that many (most) people struggle with – even well into their careers.

Now you can learn, right from the beginning, how to apply these skills at work, giving you a strong foundation for long-lasting job success. With straightforward explanations and action steps, you’ll learn how to:
  • create a career path that matches your strengths and background
  • build confidence in yourself, your skills, and your ideas
  • make sure you live up to expectations
  • avoid stress
  • handle mistakes and conflicts with grace
  • manage difficult conversations
  • and much, much more

As a bonus, the book includes a dedicated job search section with step-by-step instructions for preparing, applying, and interviewing for potential jobs, leveraging the 12 universal skills for maximum effect.

Note: Purchase of the book includes unlimited access to more than 30 downloadable tools and exercises to enhance your self-reflection and learning.
