5 People Skills Realizations to Recast Success in the New Year

Instead of New Year’s resolutions, let’s reflect on people skills realizations from this year that feed our future success. Here are five.

  1. Despite the heavy push for authenticity, it is not a license to be rude, boorish or cruel. Being responsibly authentic and considering the impact of our words on others feeds success. Let’s spread the good will of civility in the New Year. It doesn’t undermine honesty.

  2. Fears block listening. Just as insults block listening, so do fears. Reveal and discuss the fears to feed future success. People skills realizations like this breakthrough the unnecessary barriers to success.

  3. Unaddressed insecurities lead people to talk at others. This is a dead end. It leads to confusion, defensiveness, and resentments. Unearth your insecurities and develop self-awareness to fuel success.

  4. Lack of self-awareness is a major cause of assumptions. One of the biggest is assuming that everyone wants to be treated like you. Treat people they way they want to be treated — not the way you want to be treated.

  5. Everyone wants to receive basic human respect and to know that they matter. What makes them feel it varies (see previous point) yet feeling respected is essential to the human condition. Give sincere respect. It reshapes every interaction and sparks your success.


Instead of New Year’s resolutions, make a list of your people skills realizations. Knowledge gained about yourself and others is always at the ready for success. Unlike the struggles most people have in keeping New Year’s resolutions, realizations about yourself and others kick in quickly as you interact. Capture the success that comes from learning!



What did you learn about yourself, other people, and people skills this year?

    Hi Kate,

    Very nice and insightful question 🙂

    I would go with “Without struggle, there can be no progress”.

    I’m under a transition phase from IT to marketing and I’ve been struggling to accommodate being a beginner once again 🙂

    Patience is the key peopleskill I had to emphasis on to ease my way toward achieving my next target in life.

    Regards,
    Khalid
