Human relations is also the skill or ability to work effectively through and with people. Also the first known use of human relations was in 1946. Human relations can help you in a few different ways. Having the skill can help you land that job you always wanted and you would be able to enjoy it. You may also become more productive at it and stay with the job longer which in turn would allow the chance to climb the corporate ladder. Our personality has a lot to do with how we relate to other persons in our personal and professional life. It can also affect our ability to interact with others, which in turn can take an impact on our career. So it is very important to separate our personal life from our professional one. For instance if you are having a bad day because of something that may had happened at home you need to leave that problem at home. It will still be there when you return. If you take it out on a patient, a client, or an employee that would be considered poor human relation skills. That is why I think the study of human relations is important, because it can help us understand others and help us separate our personal life from our professional one.
