Did you know that:

  • Only about 40% of students who enroll in a public, four-year institution graduate within four years, and only about 59% graduate within six years (U.S. Department of Education, 2015)
  • 80% of employers look for evidence of leadership skills when evaluating potential employees? (National Association of Colleges and Employers, 2017)
  • 77% of 2,000 human resources specialists ranked soft skills as important as hard skills? (CareerBuilder, 2014)

Successful students and successful employees have something in common: a well-developed skill set that goes beyond book smarts. The skills needed for success in the classroom and on the job can be honed with deliberate effort and the right resources.

Academic success skills—note-taking, reading for understanding, preparing for and taking exams, using resources such as advisors and academic coaches, participating in experiential education opportunities—enable students to perform at the level of their academic ability.

Soft skills—communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, time management, ability to work on a team, strong work ethic, and professionalism—underpin academic and career success. Leadership—influencing people to achieve common goals—is the key to personal and shared success.

Success Skills: For High School, College, and Career provides step-by-step guidelines and hands-on exercises to enable students to enhance their academic performance and prepare for future career success.

This course helps students construct realistic expectations for achieving success, develop self-awareness, build a future-oriented attitude, and improve their academic success skills, leadership skills, and soft skills.

Special note from Cary J. Green, PhD:

Success skills are important because a well-developed skillset enables you to perform at the level of your ability. I learned this truth the hard way. I graduated in the top 10% of my high school class, but I earned a D in my first semester of college because I lacked the skills I needed to succeed in college – and I almost dropped out. That experience motivated me to develop my success skills and I ultimately earned a PhD.
That experience motivates me to continually develop my success skills and has fueled my mission to equip high school and college students with build skills essential for academic success and career readiness. The success skills taught in this course are practical, impactful, and immediately applicable.

Parents and teachers, this course can enhance your current understanding of academic and career success skills. Armed with this understanding, you can empower your students to achieve even greater success in the classroom and workplace.
