How can students succeed if they’re stressed out? In a back-to-basics style, Navigating Your Future puts stress management at the forefront, teaching students to harness their stress, create positive attitudes, and set personal goals.
Behavioral changes must be simple, interactively reinforced and show quick, positive results in order to take permanent hold. This working textbook and integrated CD helps students to assess their current academic and workplace skills and develop specific action plans to insure both academic and personal success.
This text gets to the “heart of the matter” through personal assessment and the development of goal-oriented action plans to improve students' skills.
“WOW!! This is just what new students need in a book!! I can’t state how impressed I am with this author and the text. This approach will be very effective for new students.”
--Michelle Buchman, Everest College
“The examples are exceptional and very in touch with the realities of the student. This is rare in most textbooks. In most books it seems as if the author might be trying very hard to understand what the student is really going through. However, this text has the feel and attitude that the author truly understands the challenges of the college student and has practical and realistic advice. It does and excellent job at this.”
--Theresa Tuttle, ECPI College of Technology
