What is human skill and what is its importance? :

Human skills involve the ability to work well with other people both individually and in group. As managers deal directly with people, this skill is crucial. Managers with good human skills are able to get the best out of their people. They know how to communicate, motivate, lead, and inspire enthusiasm and trust. These skills are equally important at lower level, middle level, top level management. What is human skill and what is its importance?

A culture is a way of life of a group of people-the behaviors, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them and that distinguishes the members of one group or category of people from another. What is culture?

Impact of culture on human skills:

Everyone is shaped by their own culture whether they know it or not. Our very thoughts and actions are dependent on our culture. These thoughts and actions are so ingrained that we don't even think about them until we are confronted with another culture and another way of doing things. Upon first confronting a new culture a businessperson's first reaction is to think, "my way is best." A businessman or woman may experience a 'culture clash‘. Impact of culture on human skills
