Dear friend, thank you for your question. Let me tell you one thing that for any job the interpersonal skills are very important. The persons having good interpersonal skills are very successful in personal, social as well as in professional life. Now a days the companies also prefer to hire a person having strong interpersonal skills. The interpersonal skills are so integral part of our life that we take it casually and never care about it. But one can develop good interpersonal skills after working on it.

Being a geologist you have to interact with colleagues, students, seniors and may be clients. You have to convey your opinions effectively in few words. If you cannot convey your opinion or you cannot convince a person then you have poor interpersonal skills. To maintain a cordial relation at working place your interpersonal skills really matters to a great extent.

The interpersonal skills are also known as soft skills, peoples skill, communication skill and personal skill. It is the like skill which we daily use to interact with different people both in group and as individual.
Geologist

The common interpersonal skills are as ;
Verbal communication skills; what we speak and how to speak
Non verbal communication skills; here we do not say any thing our body language conveys the meaning
Listening skills; how do we interpret the verbal and non verbal communicated messages sent by others
Negotiation skills, working with others to find a mutually agreeably out come
Problem solving; working with others to identify and solve problems
Decision making; exploring and analyzing options to make sound decisions
Assertiveness; communicating our ides, believes, faith and opinions needs and wants freely
Anger management skills; recognizing and expressing anger appropriately in order to achieve goals, handle emergencies, solve problems and even protect our health.

Good communication skills improve your life socially, personally and professionally. It has been considered that persons having good personal skills are considered to be calm, composed, confident, optimistic and charismatic.

As a successful geologist you have choose your words properly before you speak. Because few effective and meaningful words really cast a spell. You have to be very good listener, because a good listener understand the meaning of others questions and opinions. You have to be very positive, this will generate positive vibes among others.

The bottom line is that interpersonal skills are integrated part of a personality.

Dear Friend
Thanks for contacting CareerGuide.com. Well interpersonal skill has become the huge challange for our young genreation those are exploring the jobs here and there and think this skill must be explored on commercial rate. Perhaps sharma coaching centre, no bhatia coanching center is the best to teach us this skill --------------vjkhgkjvlk I am really surprised to hera such statements from the aspirants those are lacking it knowingly and unknowingly sometime one becmes the victim of cheating in the name of interersonal skill.. It has become frequent to earn everyting on tution based whcih is being claimed by the businessmen in all the sectors. It is not a healthy practice which shows our weakness in terms of poor intellectualism, if you compare the developed country they do learn all these starting from family and school so they save their time but still india is striving for all these essential ingredients due the difference in our socie-economics structure where diversity is imposed by many means. Anyway interperson skill is neither a course nor a task rather it is the basic nature of human being which comes from the family upbringing and academic nurturing. As far as geologists are concerned they are also from the ame society and having the same objective to serve the best. Therfore try to follow the points below if possible:
Geologist

1. Emotion: Always control the emotions (anger, frustration, fear, guilt) which can make you away from the serious concentrations of your work and will bring you to the fear of bad consequence. Try to clean it with the smart thinking and interacting with your surroundings in a balance manner.
2. Indecision: Inability to take any decision at right time for right thing saying yes versues no to many things saying no to versus yes to everything can lead you to ambivalance about priorities. Develop self analyzing skill which require intrapersonal skill that is asking question to your own intelleigence which you have aquired from your own experiences and then give a decision in yes or no it is the matured decision.
3. Enviornoment: This factor is also very crucial to act upon based on your surround atmosphere not in the sense of climate and teperature rather the mood of your surrounding which can affect you or influence you. so asses the matter as per the situation.

good luck
