18th of the Series is:

Interpersonal Effectiveness

Being attuned to others, demonstrating compassion and sensitivity, putting others at ease, and having the ability to relate well and build rapport with all kinds of people; having diplomacy, tact and interpersonal skills, and knowing how to use them to ease transactions and relationships with others.

 Here are some of the qualities people have with “Interpersonal Effectiveness”
  • Take a genuine interest in, and are curious about, other people; they want to know who they are, what they do and how they think.
  • Have exceptional listening skills, and listen for what’s not being said as much as for the spoken words; they listen for understanding, without interrupting, without judgment.
  • Interact smoothly with others, even at the nonverbal level.
  • Understand and respect cultural, religious, gender and socioeconomic differences.
Here are some of the qualities people have who are lacking Interpersonal Effectiveness.
  • May devalue others and dismiss their contributions, demonstrating a lack of respect.
  • Fail to listen and instantly jump in with their opinions, solutions, and conclusions.


Can you strengthen your “Interpersonal Effectiveness”? YES!


Some Developmental Tips
  • Focus on other people first, remember Stephen Covey’s habit of highly effective people, “See first to understand.”
  • Understand that people come in different styles – take a Drake P3 Assessment and learn to “read” others and enhance your ability to approach others with the appropriate interpersonal skills. Become skilled in using all types of interpersonal skills, know and understand the people you relate with, and select that interpersonal approach that is most comfortable for them, not for you.
  • Maintain composure, keep your communication constructive, convey your intent to help and support and not diminish, put down or make the other person wrong.
