How cultivating your own Social Emotional Skills can improve employment resilience

Social emotional skills (SES) are becoming key hiring priorities for employers from various industries. SES includes attributes in five core areas: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.

  1. Self-awareness – can be defined as having insight into our own thoughts and behaviors.
  2. Self-management – Can include managing emotions, and having the ability to prioritize.
  3. Social awareness – is having an understanding and awareness to empathize with others including those from other backgrounds & cultures.
  4. Relationship skills – interacting with others in a respectful way, building trust, and creating rapport.
  5. Responsible decision making – making well-thought out ethical decisions.

Any work environment can be stressful, at times there can be conflict or challenging decisions to be made. However, one of the core concepts of improving and cultivating your own SES is that it can lead to better job satisfaction through open communication, understanding, and the ability to be resilient.
