It is quite possible for everyone to develop effective interpersonal skills with a little effort.
You can learn how to deal with the feelings that arise in difficult situations instead of being overwhelmed by them. Nobody lives a life free of feelings. Everyone has moments where they feel less than capable. Interpersonal skills refer to mental and communicative algorithms applied during social communications and interaction to reach certain effects or results. The term “interpersonal skills” is used often in business contexts to refer to the measure of a person’s ability to operate within business organizations through social communication and interactions. Interpersonal skills are concerned with how people relate to one another. All teachers need and use a variety of interpersonal skills in every aspect of their work. The difficult thing, however, is to teach these skills to other people.
Very often, they are learned through the process of observing older and more experienced colleagues at work. The problem arises when those colleagues demonstrate that they do not have particular interpersonal skills often because those colleagues were given no formal training either and so the cycle of events continues. Along with the practice of interpersonal skills, one needs a set of values, a series of attitudes, all of which contribute to the ‘human’ element of interpersonal behaviour. We cannot afford to train others and ourselves in a range of skills alone. The interpersonally skilled person is one who demonstrates humane, caring qualities. According to Rogers, a basic cluster of such necessary qualities may be identified as warmth, genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard.
