A bachelor’s degree in psychology can augment one’s occupation or provide career options all its own. Potential employers value many of the skills needed to acquire an undergraduate degree.

Learning is a change in behavior over time that is brought about by experience during training in educational encounter (Akubuiro and Joshua, 2003). Training as part of education, is the acquisition of knowledge, skills and competence as a result of the teaching of practical skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competences (Angel, 2007). Training helps the learner to acquire certain useful skills and develop critical mind for the learner’s self-development. Therefore, the knowledge that comes from training is more of knowledge of how to do or perform specific tasks. Thus, the
This semester at COSTAATT was one of the hardest I ever experience thus far, but I must admit that it was also one of those that encouraged me to really come out of my comfort zone and work harder than ever before. Leadership and Ethics opened my eyes to what leadership really means, I learned that people aren’t necessarily born leaders, that leadership (more importantly, good leadership) can be learned, practiced, and mastered. I also learned that I can be my biggest roadblock to my own success as well as the biggest positive influence. It do not matter the rank, position or status, anyone can lead anyone else. In this course I became more introspective about my current leadership roles and the tweaks I could make to communicate more effectively and be a “better” leader
It is important to study something in school that you enjoy but that is also useful in the real world. I have always been asked, “what's your major?”. I would answer art history and always got a response like, “what are you going to do with that?”. Most parents and students don’t feel that there is a good foundation from learning Art History. It is often heard from high school and college students (influenced by their parents) that to succeed you must major in science, technology, engineering, or business. They think studying liberal arts is a future of unemployment and uncertainty. But, it is important to override these belief because of the large opportunity for art majors in the world. My experiences as a child, influences, and mentors have inspired me to study art history at Belmont and I want to share my experiences and knowledge of my process. What drives you to study art and pursue a career in this impressive field?
Emotional intelligence is an important factor which influences an individual success in their life (Ishak, Chiu, Rahim, Mahat, Hashim, Mutalib and Jdaitawi, 2013). “Intellectual intelligence contributes only 20% to one’s success while the remaining 80% of a person’s success in life is contributed by emotional and social intelligence” (Goleman, 1997). Yusof and Yaacob (2012) had mentioned that in their study that “Emotional intelligence is one of the main aspects of the National Education Philosophy”. Through the National Education Philosophy the important for emotional intelligence is extremely obvious and essential as intellectual intelligence and spiritual intelligence. If the students possess positive emotions towards their course, they
The art of business consultation is a more nuanced and subjective process than some may realize at first glance. There are plenty of standard practices that industry veterans continue to use, but most consulting firms view and define them differently. Each consultation job is a different case, and there’s no single process that works for every client. There are, however, more enlightened ways to view the fundamentals of effective business consulting practices.
“Soft skills get little respect, but will make or break your career.” This popular quote from Peggy Klaus certainly gives an idea of the importance of these soft skills in one’s career. Also in Stephen Covey’s book ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’ he states that in his career spanning more than 25 years in business, university and other fields, he has come in contact with several individuals who have achieved pinnacles of outward success but somehow have found themselves struggling with an inner hunger which includes a need for personal development and developing a healthy as well as effective growing relationship with people, (Covey, 1989). Directly or indirectly he explained the importance of these skills. One may question what does actually mean by this term, well soft skills can be defined as personal characteristics that enable an individual to interact effectively and harmoniously with other individuals. Ironically, for most of the people soft skills are the hardest to develop.

The qualification, indeed, lead to very smart and modern careers for graduates who love challenges, creativity, leadership and success. As a graduate of Mathematics, I have cultivated these features in my student life. Now, for my master level of study, I would like to take my chance of attaining formal skills in the area of project management.

The purpose of this essay is to identify management strength and weakness that need to be developed.
