Here’s how it’ll work:
First, we get on Zoom, and I show your teen how to create an inventory of the skills they need to succeed in high school and prepare for college. We will, of course, also discuss ways in which your teen can actually develop these skills.
During our call I will help your teen develop a plan to leverage Soft Skills Synergy.
Soft Skills Synergy is the key to building skills that work together to empower your teen to succeed in high school and college and prepare for a great start to their career.
Let me explain...
Skills in time management, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving are commonly referred to as soft skills.
These skills work together synergistically with leadership skills and academic success skills to empower your teen to succeed in the classroom.
Plus, employers highly value soft skills.
Think of it like this: equipping your teen with leadership skills, soft skills, and academic success skills while they are in high school can boost their success right now and also prepare them for future college and career success.
Once we have this covered, we will discuss a very practical and effective way your teen can document their skills and experiences.
There are a number of ways to do this, but I have developed an easy-to-use system:
Think in terms of your teen keeping an up-to-date record of their leadership and service experiences, outcomes and impacts of their activities, and a collection of reference letters and testimonials.
And if your teen is ambitious, I can teach them strategies and tactics that they can use to leverage their skills.
Leveraging their skills simply means that your teen uses their skills to be who God calls them to be and to do what God calls them to do.
Your teen can leverage their skills in two main ways.
First, of course, leveraging their skills means that they use their success skills to increase their productivity and perform at the level of their ability in the classroom and on the job.
Leveraging their skills also means that your teen increases their competitiveness for scholarships, awards, and jobs by incorporating evidence of their skills, experiences, and achievements into their cover letters and resumes and applications.
And like I said, there’s no charge for this.
