Life skills are defined as “the abilities that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life”.
Life skill workshops are designed with the objective to enhance the well-being of young students, employees, and business people and empower them to effectively cope with risky situations they encounter in their daily lives. The learning objectives are to:
· Develop positive psychological and physical outlook for oneself
· Enhance healthy work behavior
· Improve interpersonal relationships
· Recognize and avoid/deal risky situations and behaviors
· Self-actualization/ a successful person /better women for others
Life skills are behaviors used appropriately and responsibly in the management of personal, social and professional affairs. They are a set of human skills acquired via teaching or direct experience that are used to handle problems and questions commonly encountered in daily human life. The subject varies greatly depending on societal norms and community expectations.
For example, decision-making often involves critical thinking (“what are my options?”) and values clarification (“what is important to me?”). Ultimately, the interplay between the skills is what produces powerful behavioral outcomes, especially where this approach is supported by other strategies.
Hence Life skills maybe explained as all the non-academic foundational skills human beings learn and use to thrive individually and live optimally in community with others.
