Now in its Third Edition, FROM MASTER STUDENT TO MASTER EMPLOYEE will help today's students develop core skills to excel in the classroom and in the workplace. The purpose of this book is to build two kinds of bridges between the classroom experiences and career. One is the bridge of skills--the ability to perform tasks that are valued by employers. Second is the bridge of learning--the ability to update skills and acquire new ones as a lifelong learner. FROM MASTER STUDENT TO MASTER EMPLOYEE helps your students discover what skills they already have, what skills they already use in school are most applicable to the workplace, and how best to apply them. The Third Edition focuses on transferable skills that promote success in the classroom and in a global, knowledge-based economy. Tools like the Discovery Wheel, Discovery and Intention Journal, Power Process articles, Master Student Profiles, and the Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI) deepen students' knowledge of themselves and the world around them. Enhancements include new chapters on Memory and Health; additional coverage of online and adult learning throughout the text; new Master Employees in Action; and a new end of chapter feature titled Focus on Transferable Skills.
