Listening, tone, delegation and leadership are some of the most important interpersonal skills that are listed today. It is all about how you present yourself to others and how you communicate. For example, you may be an active listener who likes to listen and then give advice to people, or you may be someone who would much rather do the talking and voice your opinion without there being any intentions of there being direct advice.

You may also have a strong tone in your voice which is going to be demanding and therefore you are going to take control of different situations and be a leader within a group. Or alternatively you may have a more soft tone in your voice which is going to be less intimidating and people may feel more comfortable around you.

There are many different ways in which people present themselves to others and this may be different with regards to them meeting someone for the first time and talking to someone they have known for years. If you are studying interpersonal skills you will certainly be going into more depth and seeing how the skills we have develop and change, but if you are simply interested as a hobby you will be surprised at how important the different interpersonal skills that we have are.

'People skills' as they are often described allow us to communicate to others and express our personalities. The interpersonal skills that we have allow people to judge us within seconds of meeting us and they are what makes us different to everyone else within the world and that we meet. Some forms of body language also come under interpersonal skills as they express how open we are with people and how comfortable we are with the company that we have.
