Fosters self-directed skills and habits for success that students need
Challenged by technological, academic, financial, and interpersonal issues, students need the habits of successâpersistence, planning, questioning, connecting, coachingâfor their professional and personal future.Â Keys to Effective Learning Â nurtures these skills in students entering college by focusing on buildingÂ accountability,Â teamwork, andÂ critical/creative thinking skillsÂ that can be applied to anyÂ academic or workplace setting.
All features and exercises now incorporate coaching on skills such as initiative, motivation, and goal setting to support self-management. For example, in each chapter, Habits for Success promote problem solving and boost success. Each chapter also includes a unique and inspiring story that shows how a real person used the Habit discussed to meet a challenge and achieve a goal. Academic coaching language and powerful questions throughout reinforce the application of the skills presented.
