Case Study:

Momin was an intern at the law firm. He was given the internship for three months. His work was to assist advocates, interacting and communicating with their clients and to attend court sessions. In the very first week of Momin’s internship, after examining his habits closely, manager concluded that Momin lacked interpersonal skills, which resulted in the dissatisfaction of the clients.


1-Verbal communication:

Momin’s verbal communication skills were very poor. He found a lot of difficulty in sharing his opinions and conveying messages to his colleagues. He lacked professionalism. He could not convince his clients. Because of his poor interpersonal skills, clients were dissatisfied and they started approaching other advocates.

2-Non-verbal communication:

Like Momin’s verbal communication, his nonverbal communication skills also lacked miserably. His gestures were very inappropriate. He was also very poor in expressing his ideas due to inappropriate use of gestures with words. While attending meetings he sit in unprofessional manner with one leg up the other. His tone was sometimes rude and he also faced difficulty in making eye contact with other people while speaking.

3-Listening skills:

Momin was also poor in his listening skills. He never took proper notes while dealing with clients and on meetings. So he never fulfilled the demands of clients. He also did not listen to his seniors carefully, which the seniors consider as their insult.

4-Problem solving:

Whenever in meetings Momin was asked to give his opinions or suggestions about any problem. He was unable to give his ideas and opinions because he also lacked the skill of problem solving.

5-Decision making:

Momin’s communication skills need to be worked on. He needs to practice talking more with his seniors, colleagues and clients. To improve his verbal skills it is very important to build his confidence which can be done by improving his speaking skills. Also Momin’s non-verbal skills need to be focused on. He should practice of siting and walking in an appropriate manner. He should sit upright, should also make eye contacts to give an assuring look. To improve his listening skills he should pay his full attention and concentrate well on what people demands and what they say. By improving these skills Momin can improve his negotiation skills. With improvement in negotiation skills problem solving and decision making would be easy for him.


Thus we can conclude that interpersonal skills are very important for effective communication. Whole workplace is affected by ineffective communication.
