How do you improve people skill? Why is it that some people master people skill
while others struggle?
Improving your people skill can seeem a difficult thing to accomplish but it can
be done. Nothing is more uncomfortable than inadequate people skill.
Below are a few basic steps to take so that improving your people skill
becomes not only a change but a better lifestyle for you.
Step #1 Cut the nervousness out! Remember people are not out to murder
or attack you, they are just here to socialize both personally and in
business. If that doesnít help remember that if you are nervous then the
other person probably is too. If you still feel butterflies in your stomach
after trying to calm done just try and act calm. Sometimes just acting as
if you are calm is enough to trick your mind into feeling like you are calm.
The mind is easily fooled so act calm and your butterflies should follow.
Step #2 Improve the body language in your people skill. Crossing your arms
is subconsciously offensive because you display a piece of aggression,
stating that you would rather not become deeply engaged in the conversation
and that possibly you might be bored.
If you are seated, crossing your legs displays the same message. Try and
keep your arms down, hands in the pockets are fine. Try and keep your legs
down and if you are standing donít sway. Swaying implies again that you are
bored or that you are in a hurry and often indicates poor people skill..
Step #3 Improve the conversation part of your people skill. Nervousness is a
common occurrence when it comes to interacting with other people, it doesnít
have to be an obstacle though. Watch the conversation and donít let those
uncomfortable pauses scare you.
Remember if you are nervous there is a good chance that the other person
is nervous as well, so just take it easy. Try small talk, like the weather or the
economy or things locally that you have in common such as the job or whatís
been on television lately.
When you see the conversation picking back up then just let it flow naturally and
if you need to guide it back to a more important topic. Something else to remember
in the conversation is to avoid talking over the other person. Watch the personís
reaction and if your are really worried about interrupting, try and anticipate their
next move. Above all, apologizing instead of simply ordering the person to continue
speaking when you interrupt is never overrated. Being polite is the easiest way to
improve your people skill.
Step #4 Ending the Conversation. Knowing how to end conversation is just as
important in improving your social skills as holding the conversation is. Holding onto
a conversation that is clearly over, labels you as annoying and selfish. Watch the
other personís movements and actions.
Improving your people skill can be hard and may take longer than anticipated
based on your anxiety level and the previous exposure youíve had to the
social world. Donít worry though, keep trying, good people skill are the
foundation for success!
