Self-regulation helps us to do a self- evaluation and determine whether the emotions are in line with our values. Motivation accesses one's professional and personal goals in life. If the individual is not at a state where they expected to be, adopting new ways and techniques gets highly advised. Empathy allows one to pay close attention to what others portray to them through their language and even body language and how best to respond. Empathy achieved by putting oneself in the other person`s situation can be used to relate issues. The manifestation of social skills observed in our communication skills implies so much. Good communication between team members allows for easy sharing of information and quick conflict resolutions. Each team member needs to understand what the team requires of them and how best to deliver it. Understanding and tolerance of others go a long way in sustaining a working and effective team. Team leaders should allocate and issue duties according to members' strengths and weaknesses so that they can improve where necessary and show others what they know best.

Achieving satisfaction for the client and the organization itself is the actualization of the goals of the organization.
