More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

This eight-volume series provides students with basic information on the personal and professional skills required in the workplace. Organizational Skills offers strategies and exercises that students can use to complete tasks and projects effectively and on time. Anecdotes about real people and advice from professionals are used to highlight various points. Statistics are scattered throughout the text, along with black-and-white photographs, fact boxes, quotes, charts, and examples of recommended strategies, and each chapter is nicely summarized. Leadership Skills describes the qualities of good leaders and also includes ideas on giving and receiving criticism, team building, motivating people, and delegating tasks. In the chapter titled "Organizing a Project," there are examples of various organizational tools, such as flow charts and Gantt charts that help to monitor progress and a short list of Web sites with additional examples. Other series titles include Communication Skills, Professional Ethics and Etiquette, Research and Information Management, and Teamwork Skills. Although many concepts seem oversimplified or too general, the text is easy to read and the layout is user friendly. Each book has a glossary in which even the most basic terms are defined. This series would be ideal for students who wish to take an inventory of their skills and learn more about what employers expect and what qualities are likely to make them successful in school, extracurricular activities, and on the job. Teachers, coaches, and advisors might be able to use the exercises with students to develop a specific skill or quality. The series would be an asset to anymiddle school or high school library.
