Do you know how to draw out that super-shy colleague you’re partnering with on a project? Or how to remove the sting from your words when you’re annoyed with a colleague? Or how to show a co-worker who’s going through a stressful time that you’re there for support?If you’ve answered, “Yes” to all of these questions, then congratulations: you’re a real people person with great social skills. If, however, you’ve answered, “No” to one or more of them, then like most, you could benefit from the following nine tips for improving your interpersonal skills.
Even if you don’t work in customer service, sales, or PR, interpersonal skills form an integral part of your professional toolbox. From collaborating on a project with an insecure colleague to liaising with an important external stakeholder, you need the confidence, empathy, and communication skills to make the most of every interaction. By doing so, you’ll gain allies and simultaneously demonstrate to your supervisor that you’re capable of bringing out the best in others. And that’s a key aspect of career advancement.
