People skills important for doctors….

Doctors come in all shapes, sizes and temperaments.  Some are very good at bedside manner, where others, well, not so much.  Finally the Medical powers-that-be have recognized that good people skills are important to being an effective physician.  NPR reported this morning that the MCAT, the entrance exam for medical schools, is adding 2 hours worth of testing on people skill topics.  That puts an exclamation point behind the notion that people skills are important.

Whatever your line of business, or role in life, communicating well and interacting appropriately with other people is critical to continued success.  In many fields, technical skills will get you in the door, and even up the line a bit.  But without people skills, careers get stuck.  Whether it is managing a group of people, negotiating with vendors or customers, inspiring people to come along or just being able to communicate ideas in a way that others understand and connect, growing your people skills provides a crucial element.

We teach people skills everyday — in webinars, through our CDs, and in coaching sessions.  If you need help with your people skills, get it.  If not from us, then from somewhere.  It’s an investment that will pay off over and over again.
