You’ve heard of soft skills. They are part of the hidden curriculum that includes interpersonal communication abilities like showing empathy, compassion, and conflict resolution skills, as well as demonstrating emotional self-awareness, self-regulation, perseverance, and creative, independent problem-solving. At school, work and life, we depend on soft skills.
I’ve spent my career working with people who have tried and struggled to build self-regulation and focus at school, work and life. I’ve learned from my work that most people (maybe you) are only convinced by their own personal research, no matter what scientific research says. That is the genius of journaling: You can be your own researcher!
Unleash Your Epic Self: How to Crush it at School, Work and Life (UYES) uses a simple approach in an engaging journal-workbook format to bring you closer to the best soft-skill version of yourself. UYES is loaded with small bits of robust research, but without the fussy citations of a textbook. UYES uses fun color and design. It also guides you to notice and record what is working well during every day. It’s scientifically organized to give you week upon week of small shifts, away from what may be blocking your success, and moves you toward the future. If you are 14 or older, this is the journal for you!
My coaching clients have benefited from these skills and activities for years. In fact every activity in UYES has been tested on real people who aren’t research participants, and the book itself has had a variety of test audiences whose feedback helped to shape it to be ready for you. (Thanks if you were one of them!)
