Interpersonal Skills

It would be surprise to know that more managers are probably fired because of poor interpersonal skills than for a lack of technical ability.

A survey of top executives at Fortune 500 companies found that interpersonal skills were the most important consideration in hiring senior level employees.

Because managers ultimately get things done through others, competencies in leadership communication and other interpersonal skills are prerequisites to managerial effectiveness.

One way of describing interpersonal skills is to say-

If that is something that you are not good at then how do work with others in any role.

'I will work with you if you work with me'.

Interpersonal skills are essential ingredients of good communication but they do not come naturally.

They are strongly related to the way we were brought up (whether we were expected to be seen and not heard), our inner feelings about ourselves, our level of confidence and degree of interest in others.

When such skills are missing in the home, group or office, it can lead to loneliness, frustration, non-cooperation and substandard service.

What Does Interpersonal Skills Mean?

The skills used by a personto properly interactwith others. In the business domain, the term generally refers to an employee's ability to get along with others while getting the job done.

Interpersonal skills include everything from communication and listening skills to attitude and deportment. Good interpersonal skills are a prerequisite for many positions in an organization.
