What's it all about?
Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and navigate the people dynamics in a given situation. From the politics of the boardroom to the conversations in the corridor, your interpersonal intelligence is affecting your outcomes – for better or for worse.
How you show up matters. What you say, what you do and even what you’re thinking affects those around you. The combined result is an interpersonal impact that works like a magnet; it either draws people to you or pushes them away from you and the difference is palpable.
The world is getting smaller, the tasks bigger and the time to get them done, shorter. We need to build relationships and trust in record time. We need influence, engagement and impact. We need to pay attention to our interpersonal footprint.
The good news is that interpersonal intelligence is not just reserved for ‘natural social connectors’. It’s a skill that can be learnt, improved and mastered. I’m obsessed with this journey and I welcome the opportunity to share my obsession with you.
