In today's competitive landscape, brains alone won't get you
very far. Truly successful students and young professionals exhibit certain
skills that make them really stand out from the crowd. They communicate well,
dress and act professionally, solve problems, and seem to be natural leaders.
If you're wondering how you can acquire these important leadership and soft
skills, this book is for you.
Author Cary J. Green, PhD, draws upon years of teaching and mentoring students to show you how to thrive in your education and in your career by applying the three Rs: Readiness, Relationships, and Results. Readiness teaches you self-awareness. Relationships teaches you to communicate effectively and connect with others in your personal and professional life. Results teaches you to be future-oriented and to set and achieve your goals.
Whether you're in high school, college, or graduate school, or are beginning your career, the advice and practical exercises contained in this book will empower you to succeed in whatever you set out to do.

I have been an educator and mentor to young people for more than twenty years, and have held academic leadership positions for more than ten years. Now a full-time author, speaker, and academic/life-skills coach, I taught undergraduate and graduate students at three different universities. I have taught leadership and academic success classes, and have provided countless hours of mentoring on academic success, leadership, soft skills, and career navigation. I have received numerous awards and honors for teaching and mentoring. Although I enjoyed success as a researcher, educator, and leader in higher education, my true professional passion is mentoring young people on the development of leadership and soft skills that empower them to succeed.
I have simultaneously published “Empowering Young Christians: Developing Bible-Based Leadership and Soft Skills.” This faith-based book includes all of the advice contained in “Leadership and Soft Skills for Students” plus relevant Scripture and Biblical principles. Kirkus Reviews says that Empowering Young Christians, “…if not unique, is certainly capable of holding its own and providing value in both the self-help and Christian-lifestyle markets.”
