Identifying Student Perceptions of Non-Technical Workskills.
Brauchle, Paul E.; Petty, Gregory C.
The transition from education into the world of work that leads to career success is in some part dependent on the nontechnical work skills developed by students and the extent to which they can demonstrate those skills on the job. Research by Brauchle, Petty, and Morgan has shown that five important nontechnical work skills can be measured by the Work Attitudes Inventory. These skills are ambition, self-control, organization, enthusiasm, and conscientiousness. This packet contains a learning module, "Speaking about Career Success," that can be used to teach these five attitudes. The module contains one lesson for each of the five job success skills. For each lesson, a discussion and a profile of either a well-known person or a fictitious person who illustrates a trait is presented, along with questions for self-discovery. The booklet is illustrated with line drawings. (KC)
