1.3. Reflections: How do I move forward?
Despite being one of the most frequently used skills in society, there are few clear cut lessons on how to improve relational or interpersonal skills. It is nearly impossible to go long periods of time without interacting with other people. It is necessary to do so in both educational and professional settings. By using Social Emotional Learning, people can find ways of improving their interpersonal skills, which will assist them in a professional setting, and allow them to communicate and socialize with their peers efficiently. Similarly, in a personal setting, it allows people to understand each other easier and find ways to strengthen bonds.
If you find yourself with any regret about relationships you’ve had in the past. Here’s a helpful article to move forward.
- Name your next steps to grow in your personal relationships. Identify a plan with one critical skill to apply.
- Do you now understand how relationships can build our professional network and grow your business opportunity? Name a few people in your influence who you can work to maximize your relationship building skills – even by opening up to understand what partnerships you could explore.
- Define how you could see a potential revenue shaped through social engagement experiences. Example: Mark is a painter and you don’t think you have much in common. But at the last mixer, you sat and really listened to him and learned his brother is a realtor and you are looking for properties. You work with his brother to secure a new property and then Mark is hired to paint your new rental. This could have never happened if you did not listen to Mark.
