Many parents are in the process of sending their children off to college; many to their senior year and then to the world of work afterwards.  Given the cost of higher education, it is to be hoped that the young people in your life learned much in the academy that will make them successful.

However, Suzy Welch, former editor of the Harvard Business Review, has some bad news for the kids; not everything learned in the warm cocoon of college is helpful, and can often backfire in the real world.  In this two minute video, Ms. Welch identifies five lessons graduating seniors have to UNLEARN immediately after college to be successful.

Share this with your college (or even high school) senior so they can start getting ready now.
