WANTED: Eight Critical Skills You Need to Succeed
Achieving success for one’s self and for one’s children has never been more difficult in this highly competitive world. The newly released “WANTED: Eight Critical Skills You Need to Succeed” defines and explains the eight critical skills that are needed to succeed – not just for adults, but for their children. Based on extensive research from real-world hiring practices, the book, by author and corporate expert Charles Cranston Jett, addresses a number of vital questions related to success: •\tWhat skills make people successful in their careers? •\tWhat skills does the reader need – and what skills do their children need – to be successful in any career? •\tHow do these skills fit into the reader’s personal career management strategy? •\tWhat can adult readers and students do to learn these skills? •\tHow are these skills taught in our schools, if at all? •\tHow are these skills measured? •\tWhat skills do employees need to make a business successful? •\tHow can one determine the critical skills for his or her company? The purpose of this book is to answer these questions for individuals who are pursuing career success. It’s also aimed at students who wonder what they must learn in order to be competitive in the real world, for business leaders who know that building a talented group of employees is the recipe for business success, and for teachers who are dedicated to the education of their students and preparing them for successful lives – not only in their careers but as productive citizens. “WANTED: Eight Critical Skills You Need to Succeed” outlines the critical skills essential for success in a career and in everyday living – skills not typically taught in high school or college. This easy-to-follow guide clearly defines and shows readers how to develop critical thinking, communication, production, information, analysis, interpersonal, time management and continued education skills.
What People Are Saying . . .

"Charles Jett's WANTED: Eight Critical Skills You Need to Succeed, along with the SCANS reports, should be required reading at the White House and the Departments of Education and Labor.  Top brass should be tested to show that they understand how schools, colleges, and training programs can prepare students for successful careers and lifelong learning.  And voters should hold them responsible for 'making it happen;' one of the eight critical skills."
