Life Skills are the skills necessary for successful living. They can be thought of as falling into six main areas: self, family, job, community, leisure, and spirituality. Essential life skills include such things as being able to recognize and describe one's feelings, giving and receiving feedback, recognizing assumptions, setting realistic and attainable goals, and employing problem-solving strategies. A number of schools and colleges offer courses to train Life Skills coaches, whose services are employed by youth centres, correctional institutes, social service and self-help agencies, and other settings where people struggling with dysfunctional behaviors can often be found.
