Having good interpersonal skill is a combination of being able to say what you mean clearly and concisely, and being able to take on board other people's opinions and adapt what you say accordingly, as well as making them feel they can speak freely.
To do that, you've got to be aware of your own role in the conversation and be able to manage your own attitudes and emotions so that the conversation fulfils the agenda of everyone involved and does not get heated or over-emotional if difficult topics need to be discussed.

“I have been looking for a Co-op job in the past 6 months and had several interviews but was not chosen for an offer. However, after my initial meeting with Peter, he immediately helped me in exploring possible opportunities. He taught me how to capitalize on my established skill set in preparation for the interview he arranged for me, which eventually granted me a job offer.”
