Building Stronger Interpersonal Skills in the Workplace

Presented by


Taryn Abrahams, MFT
Empower Behavioral Services

85% of people fired last year were let go because of relationship problems at work. Interpersonal skills are the life skills we use every day to communicate and interact with other people, both individually and in groups. Some of these skills include verbal and nonverbal communication, listening skills, negotiation, problem solving, and assertiveness. Good interpersonal skills allows us to work better in groups in teams, whether it be professionally or in social gatherings. Listening skills are among the most underrated of all the life skills. What we don’t realize is they tends to impact all the rest. The strongest connection one can make with another is through actually listening to what the person is communicating to you.

Taryn will provide tips and tricks on ways to improve interpersonal skills and increase your Emotional Intelligence (EI), which will lead to better relationships, which leads to increased business and overall success.
