HBR on 'Leveraging Your Team's Interpersonal Skills'

Fast Company Now Blog has an interesting post :

"What are 'people' people? What is the relational aspect of business? Why should we care about understanding people if we are not in HR?
A Harvard Business Review excerpt 'Leveraging Your Team's Interpersonal Skills' reviews the result of an 18-year study, which shows that interpersonal savvy is critical in almost every area of business (emphasis mine - Gautam), not just in sales or human resources. It shows how the deeply embedded life interests of professionals develop into their career roles, and that individuals do their best work when it most closely matches their underlying interests."
