I think that the most under-rated form of education in general for practitioners is ‘client interaction’. We can all go to as many classes on Anatomy, Modalities, Draping Techniques, and Marketing as we want to; if you don’t have strong people skills, it can make your career very difficult. I have been in business for 9 years now, and the one thing that has helped me thrive (even through the recession) is my ability to work with a variety of clients personalities. Situations that strengthen your people skills are: Volunteer Work, Working Part Time at the “front desk” at a spa/salon, or even joining a networking group with other practitioners.
