What are Social Skills?

Let's-Live Exam-Pads 5What are Social Skills?

An individual is said to have a high degree of social skills if he is adept at interacting with and relating to a wide range of people around him. Modern society expects that individuals behave and interact based on a set of unwritten laws and rules that are premised on mutual respect. An individual who can effectively communicate a message to another is said to have a high degree of social skills. Social skills typically relate to verbal communication but non-verbal communication in the form of gestures and body language also make up a large component of an individual’s set of social skills.

Social skills are also often referred to as interpersonal skills. Businesses highly value individuals with social skills because they are not only able to add personality to an organization but encounter great success in motivating employees and communicating business objectives. A person with good social skills is also able to leave a positive impression on people and is more likely to be remembered. Businesses that deal extensively with consumer engagement will look to employ individuals with high social skills who are capable of casting the company in a positive light among customers and potential customers.
