Learn How to be a Positive Influence on Yourself and Others

  • January 23, 2014 · 6:45 PM

Appropriate for those who have never attended a Social Fluency Meet Up 

Learn the science and skills behind why some people seemingly have an endless capability to attract positive attention, understand interpersonal dynamics and meet and exceed goals. You may think it's just a natural thing, but there are several basic skills you can build on to start drawing that kind of energy your way.

In this workshop, we'll not only cover the science behind human interaction, but we'll practice the following skills:

• Reading body language and using it to make strong, positive connections with other people

• How to start and maintain the conversations you want to have, at any time and in any place

• Learn how to deepen the relationships that are important to you

When you use the techniques that our team of psychologists and professional coaches and trainers offer, you'll be amazed at how quickly you can grow in ways you never thought possible. We'd love to have you join us!

    I'm a maybe... thinking about it as it sounds like a great workshop and I'd love to go- but SF is far for me on a week night & traffic & parking is usually a nightmare over there. Are there any workshops in the South bay or even in the Peninsula that are coming up that I could attend instead?

      Hi Marta!
      At the moment, all of our workshops are being run out of our office in Downtown San Francisco - but we're very close to BART, and only a few blocks farther from Caltrain. Can you get to either of those?

      Thanks, but not really. I simply don't get off work early enough, plus the meeting goes on too late for me to be comfortable taking BART or Caltrain home which will take me at least an 1.5-2 hours to get home.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
