Event Details

Have you ever noticed on those days when you are grumpy and you feel like you don't want to talk to anyone, no one talks to you?! And then there are the days when you feel good -maybe you got a promotion at work or you're having a good hair day, and people stop and chat with you, ask you for directions, and interact with you while you're in line for coffee. In this workshop we will teach you concrete skills that you can use to be open and available for connection whenever you want to be! We will look at how to be that magnetic person that everyone seems to want to talk to, how to use body language to communicate, and from a scientific perspective we will take a look at how and why this stuff works!

Lani serves as an instructor for Social Fluency. Her curiosity in  social dynamics and relationships has led her to spend many  months living in India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, and South  America where she researched love, marriage customs,  communication styles, and what it means to be “in relationship”  from the perspective of many different cultures. In addition to  her teaching at Social Fluency, she helps individuals create the  thriving love lives that they want with her private relationship  and dating coaching practice in San Francisco and  Berkeley. Lani attended the Coaches Training Institute where  she received her certification in Co-Active coaching. She has  also studied Somatic Ecopsychology, and RC-S (parts work  therapy) which she integrates into her work. She received her  bachelor’s in creative advertising from The University of  Colorado at Boulder where she studied the psychology behind  communicating a message to the masses. When she’s not  seeing clients or teaching, she can be found tinkering around  with art supplies, trying to learn contact improv, and her latest  venture…learning how to paraglide.

Rachel serves as COO and instructor for Social Fluency’s @Work and @Play women’s and corporate courses.

A successful entrepreneur, passionate leader and networker, Rachel thrives on understanding people and helping them grow. Being 6 feet tall since the age of 14, she developed an early understanding of what it means to feel like you don’t fit the mold. Her early years were spent acting out, until she transformed herself from a rebellious teen into an inspirational youth speaker who spent a year traveling and teaching other teens leadership and pubic speaking skills. Rachel has since spent 17 years working with technology and other knowledge industry professionals and is a highly sought after facilitator leading workshops on leadership, personal branding and communication skills.

Rachel attended the Leadership Institute of Seattle at Bastyr University, where she specialized in organizational training, coaching and consulting. She received her bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from Evergreen State College, focusing on public education and social justice. In her free time, Rachel enjoys gardening, cooking and spending time in the great outdoors with her two dogs, Finnegan and Fiona.
