The Five Success Skills Every Student Should Master

This is an interesting article about some skills students (really everyone) should learn to survive their future employment environments.

"But if we step back and look at the big picture—if we consider what is essential in every situation, regardless of what technology or the workplace may require—it’s the ability to know oneself and work with others, our human literacy, that is essential for success. Today and tomorrow, people with strong intrapersonal and interpersonal success skills will be better able to solve just about every problem."
