What are Interpersonal Skills?

Interpersonal skills are the life skills we use every day to communicate and interact with other people, both individually and in groups.  People who have worked on developing strong interpersonal skills are usually more successful in both their professional and personal lives.

Employers often seek to hire staff with ‘strong interpersonal skills’ – they want people who will work well in a team and be able to communicate effectively with colleagues, customers and clients.

A List of Interpersonal Skills Includes:

  1. Verbal Communication – What we say and how we say it.
  2. Non-Verbal Communication – What we communicate without words, body language is an example.
  3. Listening Skills – How we interpret both the verbal and non-verbal messages sent by others.
  4. Negotiation Working with others to find a mutually agreeable outcome.
  5. Problem Solving Working with others to identify, define and solve problems.
  6. Decision Making Exploring and analysing options to make sound decisions.
  7. Assertiveness Communicating our values, ideas, beliefs, opinions, needs and wants freely.


  1. Trilok Singh, Awesome site you have here but I was wanting to know
    if you knew of any community forums that
    cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like
    to be a part of group where I can get responses from other knowledgeable individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any suggestions, please
    let me know. Bless you!

  2. Another waste of time in the quest to build muscle fast.
    Try to be polite but let them know that it will only
    feel worse if you do indulge. Sure, if you suddenly change your diet and lifestyle, you would probably lose quite a bit of weight.
