Interpersonal Skills: The Key to Success at Work and in Life

Wondering What Makes Up the Gamut of Interpersonal Skills?

It's a common question I get asked when we talk about interpersonal skills

Interpersonal skills are social skills that enable positive interactions with others. Interpersonal skills show those you work and live with that you have grown and developed as a person with the skills to have a harmonious relationship. They include skills such as:

  • Communication skills
  • Decision-making skills
  • Listening skills
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Assertiveness
  • Respect
  • Courtesy
  • Gratitude
  • Optimism
  • Compassion
  • Empathy
  • Conflict resolution
  • Negotiation
  • Collaboration

These are the skills we use every day in our work and life relationships. Developing good interpersonal skills will make you more personable, a better communicator, and socially adept.

We offer a range of interpersonal skills training and coaching packages. If you want to succeed as a professional, you will need to identify and develop your interpersonal skills. One of the most common reasons mid-career professionals are not successful in their careers or lose their jobs is poor interpersonal skills. Here are some actions to consider if you are struggling in this area:

TO DO LIST:

  1. Identify the skill you need to develop
  2. Get a good book on how to grow in that area
  3. Ask a family member or friend to support your growth in this area
  4. If you want to change faster, get a coach to speed up the process

We offer a range of coaching and training on interpersonal skills. We would love to chat with you. Book a time to discuss how you can work with us here

To Your Wellness,
Joyce
