My Interpersonal skills:
Communication- I believe communication is vital in everything we do, from relationships to the workforce. I am efficient when I am talking to customers or my coworkers. Conflict- rather it may be in my home or the workplace, I just take a deep breath and analyze the whole situation. I do what I can to resolve the conflict, because tension only makes the job harder. Anger- I am not easily enraged. I am very self-disciplined and was raised in a good background. I have great work ethics and I know how to deal with situations that may seem to be crawling up a wall. I always stay calm. Teamwork- I understand you can’t always work alone, so I am also very productive with working in teams and making sure that the team and myself can get everything done and that they can also depend on me. Decisive- I can make good decisions when something doesn’t go as planned. Inter Skills Self-Assessment:
