San Francisco, CA
About the class
Have you ever noticed how 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 are wearing a new outfit that makes you feel good.....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 more effectively, how to develop rapport with people you've just met - so opportunities come your way....whether it's dating that new special someone or getting put on that great project at work! We'll also talk about how to deepen that rapport, once you have it.
