Dear teacher,

Please help me check my IELTS Writing task 2- Interpersonal skills.


Thank you,

Task 2: Some employers find that their new employees lack basic interpersonal skills such as lack of ability to work as a team. What are the causes of this problem? What are some solutions?

It is true that basic interpersonal skills play an important role in interaction with other co-workers and even bosses, but today many employees still witness the shortage of these skills. There are a number of reasons behind this phenomenon and several solutions should be adopted to improve this situation.

There are two primary reasons why many new employees lack interpersonal skills on basic level. One reason is differences in personality. It is obvious that everybody has a different personality, especially introversion hindering social growth, to wit: this personality could cause seclusion and separation from the group. Another reason is the lack of training. While differences in personality are unavoidable, managing them is possible. However, many educational institutions still do not apply the training for learners before graduating.

Fortunately, several measures could be taken to prevent the problem. The first solution is that enterprises should have peer-mentoring activities with experienced people in order to help newbies build up rapport. In addition, cooperation, collaboration and camaraderie among employees would be improved thanks to team–building activities giving employees a great chance to mingle with other colleagues and bosses and allow newbies to find and understand them. Besides these activities, educational institutions could offer courses related to interpersonal skills for students to mitigate this shortage.

In conclusion, it is clear that there are various reasons for the lack of basic interpersonal skills. Luckily, steps, including the peer-mentoring and team–building activities and even the change of educational institutions, can be taken to tackle this problem.
