About This Class
Do you want to improve your interaction with others both at work and in your social life? In this workshop, we will teach you social and emotional intelligence skills to enable you to communicate more effectively in all of your relationships. From making new friends or meeting and attracting a partner, to deepening current bonds, having fun, and being more influential at work, you will learn ways you can thrive in any situation and feel comfortable in any setting.
You will learn tangible techniques and skills to connect with anyone through body language and conversational agility. We'll go over specific concepts using stories, examples, and illustrations. The second half of the session will include group exercises and drills.
We tailor many concepts and teaching methods to technical and engineering workers who want to improve their communication skills at both work and play, but Social Fluency is applicable to people in all walks of life!
