The more excellent you become at your people skills, the more people will be willing to cooperate with you when you work with them. The more excellent we become at our people skills, the more assistance we get both from our colleagues and superiors in order to be able to work to deliver value.
People who cannot get along can also not get ahead wherever they find themselves, whether in marriage, business, or social life.
Think about the following;
• When people do not like you, they may not want to get closer to you.
• When customers do not like you, they may not want to buy from you or your company.
• When colleagues do not like you, they may not want to cooperate with you.
• When your superiors do not like you, they may not want to promote or assist you in many ways.
You should avoid doing things that put people down. Such as; rarely correct people in front of others, insulting and the use of abusive words to colleagues, body languages that put people off.
You should also be inclusive in everything. Learn to invite friends those that matter when you are having an occasion. Let them feel that part of you. This will also go a long way to improve your relationship with them either colleagues or superiors.
