The most successful people in the world are able to make genuine connections with different types of people, both at work and in their personal lives. We can all think of someone we know who can comfortably walk into any situation, put others at ease, connect, have fun and enjoy themselves. Imagine feeling that comfortable just by being yourself. But what exactly does "be yourself" mean? In this workshop, we will teach you concrete skills from research on social and emotional intelligence to enable you to connect and build trust and rapport with anyone. From making new friends and attracting a partner, to deepening current bonds and thriving at work, you will learn ways to be your optimal self and make authentic connections in any situation.
