Ready for Real Life: Unpacking the Five Essential Soft Skills Great Leaders Instill in Their Students

Our app-driven world is faster and more convenient than ever before, but evidence is mounting to show that our students’ lives may not be getting better. Today’s students are the most social generation in history, but they are also the loneliest. They are the smartest generation in history, but they also struggle in basic social interactions. They have more opportunities than ever before, but they tend to feel overwhelmed rather than empowered. In this timely and practical session, Andrew McPeak, author of Ready for Real Life, defines the five core soft skills that prepare students to face the real life challenges of the 21st century. In this session, he will offer both easy-to-use strategies and compelling stories of success to show how these five skills, though timeless in human history, are still relevant for the modern age.

This workshop will be presented by Andrew McPeak from Growing Leaders.
