On most days we need to interact with people. With some people, like our close friends, we find it is easy to interact. Though even with them sometimes the interaction does not go as we hoped it would. With other persons, for many of us, interpersonal interaction can be challenging. But we can change this by improving our interpersonal skills. Interpersonal skills are important in both the professional and personal aspects of our lives. People with good interpersonal skills are able to understand others better and communicate better as well. This helps them interact with others confidently.
