It’s in the book…Conquer your weaknesses.

Leadership and Soft Skills for Students by Cary J. Green, PhD

“An apparent weakness in ability may be overcome with deliberate effort and/or by learning new skills. I have seen many young people who feel they have a weakness holding them back or preventing them from overcoming an obstacle discover that the weakness actually represents the need to work harder or smarter.”

It’s in the book…intelligence is not enough.

Leadership and Soft Skills for Students by Cary J. Green, PhD

“One of the most important things to understand when you are young is that intelligence alone won’t make you successful. To truly be successful, you must develop leadership and soft skills. Leadership is the ability to influence others, and soft skills are a collection of abilities, behaviors, and attitudes that increase your effectiveness. Many young people fail to fully develop these key skills because they do not truly understand their importance. Furthermore, many young people ‘don’t know that they don’t know’ the importance of these skills.”
