Interpersonal skills are asset for a manager
 
Interpersonal skills are extremely important for a manager because a manager is expected to lead teams and communicate with his subordinates on a regular basis. A good leader is one who is able to understand the strengths and weaknesses of his subordinates and assign tasks to them accordingly. And this is possible by having a good rapport with one’s colleagues. A successful manager not just assigns work to his subordinates and ensures that it is completed on time but he also ensures that his subordinates have ample opportunities for growth. 
 
A manager is required to monitor the progress of work and solve the problems of his colleagues. For this, he is required to hold meetings with his team members to understand the problems they are facing and assist them in times of need. A manager acts as a liaison between clients and his subordinates and ensures that the requirements of the clients are communicated properly to his team members. 
 
Interpersonal skills are sometimes referred to as social skills, people skills or soft skills but they all mean the same thing – the ability to understand people’s needs and requirements and deliver substantial results to them and the ability to communicate your thoughts and ideas in an effective manner. 
 
Every organisation, be it big or small, stresses the importance of interpersonal skills in a manager, which is why business schools, which groom individuals into business leaders, focus greatly on interpersonal skills during their MBA curricula. 
 
Warren Bennis, an American scholar, consultant and author, once said, “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality”. And this is possible if the leader is able to communicate effectively and motivate his subordinates to work hard towards a goal.
 
Interpersonal skills are important for everyone but they are especially so for a manager whose job revolves around communication, coordination, administration and management.
