What is the Key to Interpersonal Skills?
The skill of influencing others is a valuable asset to have; it can help us sell products and ideas, convince people and institutions to assist us, and even get the world to change! After all, while we don’t have the power to control other people, we can always do our best to persuade them.
Seeing the Other Side
The first step in influencing other people is entering their world. This means setting aside your own point of view, and looking at the situation from another person’s perspective. Remember, each person is unique, and consequently sees the world differently. You can’t always assume that what’s clear to you is clear to the people you are talking to.
In short, you have to be able to answer this question for them: “what’s in it for me?”
Seeing the other side involves knowing what is important to the other person(s): their values, interests, and preferences. Do they have strong feelings against what you are pitching to them? What would it take to for them to get over their resistance? What are their characteristics, personality traits, social status, or professions that can you use in order to make your point more convincing?
Research, active listening, and keen observation can help you in “seeing the other side.”
