Welcome to this brand new series “7 Skills for Right Now”, designed to equip you with guidance and support for your students to enable them to thrive amidst uncertainty and change.
These skills make a huge different in changing perceptions, raising awareness and strengthening confidence.
What are the 7 Skills?
Grounded in research and in experiential learning workshops run with lawyers, medical practitioners and university students world-wide, we each have unlimited capacity to develop adaptability, critical thinking, empathy, integrity, optimism, proactivity and resilience.
When everything around you is deeply uncertain, when you feel anxious, when you’re surrounded by rapid change, the best thing you can do is dig deep and harness these skills.
They will enable you, and your students, to better manage this new environment and our constantly changing personal and professional landscape.
This blog series is also part of a wider initiative from Pearson to support students as they transition to higher education. I have worked alongside Pearson’s learning design team to lead on the design and development of these FREE Transition Units.
We hope that you will signpost your students to these free resources and to this blog series on the 7 Skills.
Each week I’ll be focusing on a different skill. Follow the #7skills hashtag on LinkedIn to make sure you don't miss the remaining blogs in the series. You can also check back to this page to access the subsequent blogs.
