You’ve seen phrases such as “Build America’s Workforce Pipeline” and “Next Gen Business Leaders” on posters and headlines – maybe even some we have written! Before you gloss over these as slick slogans, let’s stop and think about them. You are on a Steering Team that directs the education of students in your community. Many of those students will work in local businesses after college or straight out of high school. These students ARE your future business leaders, and you DO have a say in what they learn.
This issue focuses on how you can ensure your students are learning the “soft skills” or “workplace skills” necessary for success in any career field. You will also learn how your local business leaders can assist in efforts to keep the business content in our curriculum current and forward-thinking. Finally, we will share tips heard from HSB Steering Teams across the country on how to facilitate more engaging and productive meetings.
Thank you for serving the students in your school district. As always, we welcome your questions and feedback about High School of Business™. We can be reached at 614-486-6708.
