1. Effective communication

Effective communication is one of the key social skills in everyday interactions with people. It’s the only way they can actually understand what you are trying to relay to them. It is especially important when you work in a place where you have to talk with a lot of people or relay concise information quickly. If you are a socially awkward person or have issues with talking to people, you can write the words down and practice what you have to say to people before-hand.

2. Active Listening

In conversations with people, ability to listen and actually hear what people have to say reduces social awkwardness. People naturally come to you for advice, guidance and your opinion on matters. If you are not really good at listening, make a conscious effort to really listen to what people have to say.

4. Good manners

Good manners make you a generally likeable person. It can also help one get up the food chain. A simple ‘thank you’ can make a colleague’s day and it immediately gets you in their good books. People relate more to people with good manners than people who don’t.
