Life skills are more important than a person's intelligence quotient (IQ). They are those invaluable skills people use daily, allowing them to create the life they desire and access the inner resources needed to succeed. The life skills activities and life skills worksheets found in this book will assist the participant in developing many practical life skills.
A person's life skills IQ includes physical, mental, career, emotional, social, and spiritual intelligence. This workbook helps participants learn more about themselves and the competencies they possess in many life skills areas, including:
