The buzz words of today are challenge, resilience, growth mind set, forward thinking….. But who prepared us for this? Who equipped us with the skills we use to not survive but thrive Did anyone teach you time management skills? How to plan your day? How to work with others in the professional environment? How old were you when you were taught how to listen, how to attend to another person? If we look at the Early Years curriculum we can see that Listening and Attention can be seen right from the start.
