I believe there are three instances in my life which can clearly demonstrate my ability to work effectively with people. Effective communication must be taught and developed from as early an age as possible. There are many instances and occasions from which you can learn in life, however, my first big lesson came when I was in high school. I was helping my uncle who worked as a general practicing dentist. This experience taught me a lot. It was thanks to this small but important job that I was able to build a strong foundation for my future. I learned the most simple and very much needed things. For the first time in my life I had to speak to adults as equals and act like an adult as well.
My second experience that helped develop my ability to work effectively with other people grow was my job as a dental assistant. I took this job during dental school and so had my hands full. Keeping myself in control during stressful situations was one of the most important skills I gained. When you are doing so many things at once it is important to remember that your problems are yours and only yours. During that time it was important for me to learn to separate my personal life with that of my work and not to through my bad mood on the clients. It was in the time I worked here that I became familiar with the more professional side of communication. I was a student student here and I was very ready to become a grownup.
Effective communication skills are needed in all kinds of jobs; I can say this from my own experience. The skills I gained during my work in the medical sphere came in handy even when helping my husband in the book store. There are basic rules that need to be followed when talking to clients and I was all too glad that I knew them when this time came.
