Interpersonal skills are a critical element in individual and organizational performance. Research has shown that interpersonal skills are an important element of overall professional success comparable to intelligence and previous work experience.

In addition to providing valuable information, TRACOM’s social media channels give professionals venues for sharing best practices to improve interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence in the workplace. Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions to improve work and personal life. Research indicates a strong relationship between business performance and emotional intelligence.

Additionally, several short videos explain the history and benefits of SOCIAL STYLE, the leading model of interpersonal effectiveness. TRACOM’s SOCIAL STYLE Model enables companies to increase management effectiveness and improve productivity.

“TRACOM’s social media outlets give professionals easily digestible pieces of information,” said David Collins, TRACOM vice president and general manager for training products. “We’re digging into our years of research and sharing specific pieces of data to provide insight and guidance for improving interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence.”

TRACOM’s partner, DeLaPorte & Associates, has also just released an iPhone app for the millions of people who have learned how SOCIAL STYLE awareness can improve performance and interpersonal skills. The application is also beneficial for those who are not yet familiar with SOCIAL STYLE concepts but want to interact better with others.
