Research shows that soft skills are often better predictors of success in the workplace than technical skills. Standing up for Yourself is one title in the six-book series Soft Skills at Work. Standing up For Yourself explores standing up for rights through two contrasting photostories featuring Nan, who works as a cleaner at a motel. Nan has a rash from the cleaning products she needs to use on the job, but her boss doesn’t take her concerns seriously. Then Nan finds out co-workers also have issues with the cleaning products.
