The Core Competencies of Leadership – Interpersonal Skills

It’s important for leaders to know how to connect with their people. It is also about being able to be task-oriented, but what’s the point of being outcome oriented if you forget about your people and their contribution to the success of the organisation?

A leader with strong interpersonal skills should be able to do the following:

  • Communicate powerfully
  • Inspire others to be high performers
  • Build positive relationships
  • Develop the skills and talents of direct reports
  • Work in a collaborative manner
  • Be an effective team member
  • Recognise and reward the contributions of others
  • Be open and receptive to new ideas
  • Respond positively to feedback
  • Effectively resolve conflicts
  • Influence others within the organisation including their manager, peers and direct reports
  • Build the self-esteem of others, give positive indications of their ability to succeed
