What is Interpersonal skills
Interpersonal Skills are the
life skills we use every day to
communicate and interact with
other people, both individually
and in groups. People who have
worked on developing
strong interpersonal skills are
usually more successful in both
their professional and personal
lives.
PUT ON A HAPPY FACE
People who are the life of the party usually have one thing in common: They're happy. If you
smile often and have an upbeat attitude, your coworkers will be drawn to you. And when you're
having a bad day, don't try to pull others down with you. You may find that people pass you by
in favor of those with a more cheerful outlook.
SHOW THAT YOU CARE
When it comes to praise, don't hold back the applause. If a coworker has done something you
appreciate -- no matter how small -- thank them for it. Identify at least one attribute you value
in each of your coworkers, and let them know about it. Give colleagues a warm welcome
whenever they call you or visit your office.
BE RESPECTFUL OF
COLLEAGUES
Take note of what's happening
with your coworkers. Recognize
the happy events in their lives --
from a birthday to a kid's
kindergarten graduation -- and be
sure to show your genuine
compassion when they face any
personal tragedy.
BE AN ACTIVE
LISTENER
Unfortunately, active
listening is becoming a
lost art. Being an active
listener shows that you
intend to both hear and
recognize another's
perspective. Using your
own words, repeat what
the speaker has said. By
doing this, you'll know
that you've processed
their words, and they'll
realize that your answers
have been genuinely
thought out.
PROMOTE TOGETHERNESS
Help coworkers thrive by creating a friendly, cooperative environment. Treat everyone the same,
not like they're part of a hierarchy, and don't act like one person's opinion is more important
than another's. Don't gossip about your colleagues. Always consider your coworkers'
suggestions.
SETTLE DISPUTES
You know how to bring people together, and now it's time to become the person they can turn
to when disputes arise. When colleagues disagree, it can bring the mood of the whole office
down, but you can improve the situation by taking on the role of moderator.
BE A GREAT
COMMUNICATOR
In addition to being an active
listener, you need to have
otherwise great
communication skills. When
in a discussion with
colleagues, don't blurt out
the first thing that comes to
mind. Instead, think carefully
about the words you use.
Make them laugh
Funny people are popular for a reason, so if
you've got a great funny bone, use it. As long
as you avoid inappropriate jokes and don't
laugh off serious situations, you'll find your
colleagues will be drawn to you.
An empathetic person can
understand how another person
feels, and empathy is an
important trait when working
with others.
DON'T BE A WHINER
Almost every office has a chronic complainer,
and you'll notice they tend to be the least
popular person in the office. If you constantly
whine about this and that, your negativity
will push others away from you.
