Well developed communication and interpersonal skills have always been fundamental to successful living whether it be workplace relationships or in the sphere of family, friends and associates.
An individual’s ability to understand his or her emotions and the emotions of others as well as having an ability to act appropriately based on this understanding is known as “emotional intelligence”. This is the ground zero from which all successful human endeavour springs forth.
Leadership skills and seeing a project through to completion with a capacity to meet performance outcomes is, for many, a part of daily living. Showing initiative, problem solving and making sound judgments are all essential skills in today’s job market.
Being a team player means that you accentuate the assets of all those you work with in order to create a dynamic fusion of possibilities where each contributor feels valued for what they bring to the task. Building trust and seeing participation as the key to harmony is what sustains all sound creative practice.
For all students engaged in Stage 4 – 6 Drama at Cherrybrook Technology High School, these important elements of successful living are embedded within the core curriculum of the subject.
