10 Tips for Improving Social Interaction by Tim Bryce
It seems participation in trade groups and volunteer organizations today are dwindling. This is surprising since such groups provide a convenient vehicle to meet and exchange ideas with your peers. Such forums are useful:
To exercise our basic social skills. To stay abreast of current developments in our field of interest. To establish relationships with people who possess different skills and knowledge that can help us.
Instead of resisting networking with others, the younger generation should embrace it. I heartily recommend joining trade groups and volunteer charity fraternal organizations. Regardless of the group dynamics involved, such forums help to improve ourselves personally and professionally.
