Life Skills: Business and Social Etiquette

Life skills are basic human skills that are often needed to tackle everyday problems and issues. Life skills enhances one’s self-development so that individuals have the potential to become the very best that they can be. They build self-efficacy and autonomy in the process. The demands of young adulthood can be overwhelming and if one is not equipped with the appropriate life skills to face the demands; it can even become quite stressful. Some studies show that the most stressful time in one’s life is the developmental stage from adolescence to young adulthood. Changes and transitions in one’s life such as moving away from home, going off to college, learning to manage money, meeting new people, and starting a new career can be very challenging.
