Recent research has identified interpersonal communication skills as critical attributes for new employees and more experienced workers seeking promotion. However, despite the significance of interpersonal communication in the workplace, one's knowledge of these skills and how they may be taught is limited. The two articles comprising this theme section are intended to extend one's understanding of these skills. The topic of this themed section, "Interpersonal Communication in the Workplace," resembles a largely "unexplored region." The two articles comprising this section offer useful bibliographies concerning numerous studies examining the people skills, the "soft" skills, and the personal skills often associated with interpersonal communication.
