The aim of the Interpersonal Skills unit is to enable you to develop an understanding of people and relationships and how to adapt when communicating with those from diverse cultures, genders, personalities, and backgrounds. In a highly competitive and globalised employment market, many employers actively seek students who have well developed interpersonal skills, and are able to show that they can both engage positively and work with other people in a proactive manner.

At its core, interpersonal skills are processes that can actively resolve blocks, distortions so as to enable individuals to engage on a variety of different levels, and the specific aim of this unit is to provide you with a repertoire of essential tools, techniques and methods that will enable you to manage these interactions and processes, thereby creating a ‘personal edge’ for yourself when working with other people. The challenge in this unit is for you to develop the skills necessary to illustrate how you will develop and manage your own interpersonal engagement strategy under a variety of different circumstances and situations.
