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!
