Do you know research shows that a person who is good with people and has grit is more likely to succeed than another who only gets good academic results?
Being able to ask for help and having a strong positive social support system (in the form of family and friendships) can strengthen your well-being and ability to recover from setbacks.
Empathy, listening skills, social perception, cooperation (team play) and conflict resolutions are some major skills that are necessary for workplace success. These similar skills are also important in forming and maintaining deep and loving relationships with people of different characters and personalities.
