The Industries with the Worst Interpersonal Skills

Earlier this week we posted a blog demonstrating the top 5 interpersonal skills. This week’s infographic looks at the industries ranked lowest in Versatility.

Versatility is about relationship skills, and ultimately, it has been proven to be the best predictor of success. While being in the worst performing industries category isn’t a good thing, there are many opportunities for these industries ranked lowest in Versatility.

A primary lesson from Style and Versatility is that enhancing interpersonal effectiveness never stops; there is always more to develop. Versatility can change over time and fluctuate across people and circumstances. These bottom five industries are characterized by jobs which involve minimal interactions with customers or jobs that might be more concerned with safety protocols than relational issues. But at the end of the day, we should always strive for improvement, and that is what Versatility is all about!
