Why are interpersonal relationships so important? Strong interpersonal relationships allow you to gain allies, secure business deals and help to bring out the best in others. Which can ultimately lead to more job fulfilment and increase your prospects of career advancement.
Here are six tips to strengthen your interpersonal skills:
- Practice active listening. Maintain eye contact with the person speaking and repeat what they say in their own words. This will ensure that the speaker feels heard and also help you to be able to recall the conversation in the future.
- Practice Empathy. Put yourself in other people’s shoes. This will allow you to gain a well-rounded view of things as you allow yourself to see the world from other people’s perspectives.
- Be Assertive. Show confidence in your opinions and your abilities. Set boundaries for yourself and others and don’t be afraid to communicate your needs.
- Maintain your relationships. Make sure that you connect with your friends, family and colleagues in meaningful ways. Making time for the people in your life shows them that you value the relationship, this can help both advance your career and personal relationships.
- Have a positive outlook. Reminding yourself every day of the positive things in your life, i.e. practising gratitude, not only improves your mental health but also reminds you daily about the good things in your life, including people.
