Interpersonal Skills Training

What are Interpersonal Skills?

Interpersonal skills are personal behaviors that encourage effective, collaborative, and professional relationships with others. These include social and behavioral skills that demonstrate dependability and respect.

Strong Interpersonal Skills are fundamental for building professional relationships with coworkers, clients, customers and managers. And, these basic soft skills are just as important to entry level employees as any technical skill they may possess. Understanding how personal behavior impacts others is the key to mastering these skills. Learning to act with honesty and integrity, working well with others, and treating people with respect are all part of professional interpersonal behavior.

Because of the foundational nature of these skills, Wonderlic’s Interpersonal Skills Training course is a prelude to its Professionalism course. Impolite or selfish employees, those who don’t take responsibility for their work, and those who don’t keep their promises can’t be considered “professional,” and must learn to appreciate the importance of these skills in the workplace.

Real-life examples and exercises teach the importance of these skills, as well as the consequences of not fulfilling basic job functions. And, learners are shown how their workplace behavior can impact their reputation and are taught best practices for building effective working relationships.
