The complex social environment in which we live today requires careful attention to skills recognition and enhancement. Obtaining and developing the ability to effectively manage not only ourselves, but also our social, academic and work environments effectively is the key to personal success. Employers worldwide also require employees to be proficient in managing themselves within the workplace. Life skills: my journey, my destiny is an essential workbook for all of us wanting to reach our full potential, both personally and professionally. Life skills: my journey, my destiny is also an excellent guide for facilitators of life skills modules or programmes. The practical and applied approach makes the book compatible with outcomes-based curricula at schools, colleges and higher education institutions. It has a systematic and user-friendly design to help students obtain and enhance critical skills. The workbook addresses the following areas: Student life and adjustment to life on campus and lecture and study skills; Self-directed learning, time management, career planning and motivation; Coping with cultural diversity and change; Conflict management, problem solving and decision making; Interpersonal relationships and healthy living (including HIV and AIDS, drug abuse and pregnancy); Self-image, assertiveness and stress; Critical and analytical thinking; Helping skills, trauma, loss and bereavement; Entering the world of work: CVs and portfolios, job searches and interviews; Ethics and professional behaviour in the workplace. Life skills: my journey, my destiny is directed primarily at learners preparing to enter the world of work, and learners who are forming new types of relationships, redefining themselves and beginning to establish their identities as adults and workers. The authors are experienced facilitators of life skills and related subject areas. They come from various academic environments and institutions in South Africa. The content of this book is therefore based on extensive practical experience within the higher education environment.
