    employability skills are generic in nature rather
    than job specific and cut across all industry

    understand the part they play in building their
    organisations, and have the practical skills to
    work effectively in their roles.

So, Where Are You?
Three Magic Tools
  • There are three tools that will help you to make
    every relationship work
  • Respect
  • Helpfulness
  • Understanding

  • Respect the person you work with.
  • If you dont like him / her, and still need to
    work together, make the effort to find at least
    one nice thing about the person.
  • Remember, that no one is totally wrong or bad.
  • Even a clock that does not work tells the correct
    time twice a day!

  • Be genuinely helpful.
  • Remember the objectives of a professional
    relationship achieving the organizational
    objectives and goals, in a positive and proactive
  • So, there is no room for personal agendas and
    score settling. Pettiness like He didnt help
    me when I needed it, so why should I do it now?
    needs to be left behind in the childhood.

  • Involves, first of all, listening.
  • Listening with an open mind, and
  • Understanding also involves empathy.

What is Relationship Management?
  • It is all about being great at your
    interpersonal skills and relating effectively
    with others. People who efficiently use their
    interpersonal skills always
  • Get the best out of a relationship.
  • Handle difficult situations with ease and
  • Behave in a situation centric way, and not a
    people centric one.
  • Separate problems from people.
  • Focus on solutions rather than problems.

  • Others are others you could have come across
    this attitude several times.
  • But you begin to change when you realize that the
    relationship you have with them indeed affects
    your work life as well as your personal life.
  • This prompts you to understand others.
  • What does understanding others mean?

Understanding Others
  • The first step to understanding others is
    learning about them. In organization context,
    managing your relations with your colleague could
    mean 2 things
  • Knowing what you need from him
  • Knowing what he needs from you
  • We can learn more about others when we disclose
    our selves. Self-disclosure is seen as a useful
    strategy for sharing information with others.
    Also, we build trust and rapport.

Team work
A team is a group of people who are working
towards the same goal. A good team works well
together, has attributes such as flexibility and
synergy, and achieves more than the sum of its'
