Speaking with a client today, the founder of a nonprofit, private school, our conversation turned to the importance of developing social skills in children. Granted, academics are vital to success and future opportunities, but let’s face it, the biggest challenges we tend to deal with in life have to do with how we relate and deal with other people. Our social skills so to speak.
Consider the last time you had to deal with an employee because they had poor math or reading skills. Now consider the last time, perhaps today, you had to resolve a conflict between two people because they don’t seem to get along.
This week, I will present some ideas and tools, and perhaps a system, that will help you develop a more “social, people friendly environment.”
