The Book

By Emma Sue Prince

THE ADVANTAGE

We live in times of unprecedented change and exciting opportunity. The tools and technologies we use at work, technology itself, economic cuts, increased workload and information overload, performance-based work and short-term contracts as well as juggling home life and relationships are making a huge impact. All of these kinds of changes make it easy to feel overwhelmed, stuck, distracted, under pressure and feeling a lack of control.

The Advantage invites you to take back control by delving into the skills you already have. These are the skills that will help you thrive in this environment: adaptability, critical thinking, empathy, integrity, being proactive, optimism and resilience.

Always stay one step ahead with the

Seven Soft Skills.

We need adaptability, critical thinking, empathy, integrity, being proactive, optimism and resilience. It’s a wonder we can survive in such a harsh environment, never mind thrive. But thrive we can, and we are in a unique position to do just that. Why? Because the skills and competences you need right now are all interpersonal ones. Ones that will help you stay one step ahead in the midst of change and uncertainty. Ones that you naturally have already and can develop more. The Advantage is available in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Czech, Arabic and Indonesian, with a special edition available for India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and The Maldives. On the shelves at Waterstones, Foyles and all major book retailers.

Habilidades Para La Vida

By Andrea Giraldez and Emma Sue Prince

Which is more important for our students: academic results or personal development? As teachers, we are sometimes so focused on their future that we forget about the person behind the student, the young person hurtling towards a world in which life skills will make all the difference.

More than simply accumulating information, young people need to learn how to apply their knowledge. They need to learn, not only how to live, but how to live and work with one another. All this and more can be achieved through the development of soft-skills in the classroom, throug experimentation, reflection and conversation.

As teachers we are the primary change agents. We are role models, and as such we teach most powerfully by example. The good news is that anyone, at any age, can develop soft skills, provided they get the right training. Soft skills training experts Andrea Giraldez-Hayes and Emma Sue Prince tackle all the obstacles teachers face and offer simple solutions in this book.
