INTRODUCTION

Why do I Need Interpersonal Skills?

Depending on who you are, interpersonal skills either play a key role in your everyday relationships or they’re rarely necessary. Either way, having strong knowledge of what interpersonal skills are and how they can be essential to building healthy, productive relationships, communicating more effectively, and getting results from your interactions with others, can be critical to your success.

In this guide, we’ll take a close look at what interpersonal skills are and how they relate to our social behavior, our communication skills, and the way we interact with others in different settings.

Why Did I Write This Guide?

A major shift has taken place in the way we communicate and interact with one another, mainly due to things such as social media and the array of mobile and digital mediums available to us. Nowadays, we’re able to connect with one another from hundreds and even thousands of miles away, our messages aren’t personal, and we’ve become accustomed to hiding behind text and emoticons. And, needless to say, all this is taking a toll on the development of our interpersonal skills. However, those who understand interpersonal skills, apply best practices, and use them in their everyday relationships tend to have better outcomes in their personal, social and professional lives.
