Published on

Interpersonal skills, are very important and useful in our day to day lives, both at home and in office. It’s true that everyone of us have a fairly good idea of what they are and how important they are – but generally speaking, are not very much concerned about practicing them. We notice, when others are lacking. We don’t seriously remember to practice those very skills, which we wish that others practice.

It is in all such cases, these tips are likely to be of considerable use – first, to remind ourselves, and more importantly to motivate us to practice them, one by one. This method has the advantage of ensuring that we improve, step by step, become increasingly conscious of the improvement, and internalize the same. As we practice more and more, we get convinced of the improvement in our personal relations, both at home and office, and start really feeling the advantages. Good Luck.

  1. 2. 9 Tips on Improving Interpersonal Skills
  2. 3. Smile Smile releases positive energy; positive energy you radiate will draw people towards you. Be positive, friendly, smiling and cheerful, about work and about life.
  3. 4. Be Attentive to Others As social beings, we want to be accepted and appreciated by others. Similarly, others also want the same from us. Be with the people, to share and acknowledge happy moments; express concern, compassion and sympathy in difficult situations.
  4. 5. Make eye contact Eye contact, when honest, is generally appreciated. It is very silent, yet eloquent, and powerfully succeeds in effective transmission of thoughts and feelings.
  5. 6. Practice active listening Listening, particularly active listening, will convince the other person that you are attentive. This includes, if necessary, restatement in your own words. This assures the other party that you have not only heard but also clearly understood. Everybody appreciates a person who is willing to listen to them.
  6. 7. Be appreciative Surely, you can find more than one good thing about each one of the persons with whom you are working. Please know, that they would very much love to hear it from you. Be generous with praise, as this really encourages and obtains commitment. Make people feel welcome when they call on you, or stop by your seat.
  7. 8. Be Positive and attract people Be positive, fair, objective, honest, hardworking, trustworthy and goal-oriented. People should love to work with you and love to work for you. No prejudice, no preference, only fairness. No gossiping, no rumor-mongering. No talking behind the back, and no back-stabbing. Think and promise, and if you promise, really do the required follow-up. People should love and trust you.
  8. 9. Improve Communication skills Improving effective communication skills is very important, satisfying and fulfilling. Pay close attention to what you are saying and how you are saying. Clarity, commitment and character must be transparently visible. Knowledge, skills, maturity and wisdom should get reflected. Avoid thoughtless speech as people would not respect your words or opinions.
  9. 10. Be understanding and empathizing As a good team member, you must grow to become a good leader. Understanding and empathizing will help you a great deal. Become an effective mediator. Help in resolving the differences, if any. You would acquire respect, trust and admiration. Empathizing is putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and understanding how they feel. Be in touch with your own emotions but, more importantly, view situations and responses from the other person’s perspective.
  10. 11. Be appropriately assertive Assertiveness implies safeguarding your rights without in any way violating others’ rights. It also means being honest, fair and open about your motives and intentions.
  11. 12. HOW TO IMPROVE INTERPERSONAL SKILLS ? Take up just ONE or TWO of these points for serious implementation. Concentrated action and constant practice, as a small group, will bring sustainable results.
