  • Interpersonal Skills
    This is the ability to work well with your coworkers, facilitating the work of other employees, and working out conflicts between employees
    It all begins with the handshake
    History – We do handshakes because in the medieval times it was normal to carry a weapon with you, so it was a sign of peace to put your right hand forward to a new friend
    Five traits of a solid handshake:
    Timing – Boss first, look in the eye, smiling, speak an intro

  • Multicultural / Harassment awareness
    A professional who embodies cultural sensitivity and knowledge. This includes an ability to create a rapport with a diverse workforce.
    When conduct based on a person’s age, color, disability, gender, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status unreasonably interferes with that person’s work, academics, or participation
    Always contact administration or HR for questions or concerns.
