Dear Friend, many thanks for your question, In fact you have asked a very practical question, the personal and professional skills are very important not only for a fishery scientist but also for every person who has dealing with others. Every person is borne with some personal or professional skills (also known as communication skills, interpersonal skills, soft skills, social skills, peoples skills), but we rarely realized that how we behave with others. We never give a thought that how we communicate with others.

Let me tell you something about the personal and professional skills. It has been said that person having strong personal and professional skills are very successful in professional, social and personal life. The person having good personal and professional skills are considered to be calm, cool, confidant, optimistic and charismatic.

Fishery Scientist

Being fishery scientist, you have to interact with students, colleagues, superiors and some time clients also. Therefore, you have to be very clear in your thoughts to convey them easily to others, specially to the students. As fishery scientist, you will also involved in teaching, research and other departmental activities, you have to convey your opinion in meetings, conferences, seminars and workshops. Therefore, you have to be very precise in your words

The common personal and professional skills are as;

1. Verbal communication skills; what to say and how to say. We have to use selected words, that should be meaningful to convey your message to others. The pitch should be loud enough so that that the person can hear you easily.

2. Non verbal communication pr personal skills; here we do not say a word, our body language conveys the meaning, what we want to say, but care should be taken that the body gesture should be decent enough to convey the meaning.

3. Listening skills; how we interpret the verbal and non verbal messages conveyed by others. One should be good listener also, unless we listen properly to others, we cannot understand them and that will lead to communication gap.

4. Negotiation skills; Working with others to find a mutually agreeable solution

5. Anger management; this is very important, you have to be calm and compose and show anger when required, otherwise things will go in wrong direction.

With little efforts and thought one can develop these skills easily.

Good Luck...
