8 Real-world Skills You Learn From Callings

Our years of church experience are some of the best training in the world.

Dependability, preparation, and how to run a meeting are a just few of the skills we learn through serving in callings.
By attending meetings and doing their callings faithfully, converts to the church who lack education or training, who are rising from the depths of poverty, soon find themselves able to function as leaders and managers, or as team players who can be counted on to fulfill their assignments.

And when you think about it, we’re all converts to the church, because even lifers like me begin as unskilled and uncivilized barbarians (a k a “babies”), who then gradually learn all these skills, along with acquiring gospel knowledge and a testimony. 
See all 8 skills in the article, Callings Help Us Learn Skills, by Orson Scott Card.
