Discussion Guide Excerpts

Workforce Readiness Skills and Related, Entry-Level Assessment Programs

LRI’s comprehensive Discussion Guide provides print-based and work-related situations that are drawn from several of LRI's assessment programs. These situations can be adapted to meet the particular needs of a wide range of programs, including youth, adults, incumbents, dislocated workers or transitioning prison populations.

The following material is taken from Learning Resources, Inc. (LRI’s) Comprehensive Discussion Guide. It is designed to be used by workforce professionals, teachers and trainers to enable them to integrate soft skill discussion into academic or career courses, create or enhance workshops and support other opportunities to develop people's soft skills effectiveness.

LRI recognizes that soft skills are developed or remediated most effectively when individuals' strengths and developmental needs are identified through pre-assessment, then developed through various interventions over time and, finally, when attainment is documented through post-assessment.

Examples of discussion situations taken from the Comprehensive Discussion Guide can be seen below.

The Comprehensive Discussion Guide is available to LRI’s customers at no cost.
