CONNECTION: INTERPERSONAL SKILLS
These are essential communication skills you need in order to work and socialise effectively. It's not just the words we say, but how they come across and our body language. In work these interpersonal skills are particularly useful when it comes to leadership and negotiating. To progress we also need to be able to work well with others by showing empathy, patience, actively listening and responding meaningfully.
