Social Skills That Help Your Work Transition

  • Apr 22, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • Valencia Gardens

We all know that networking is the #1 best activity that a person in job transition could engage in. We also know that for many of us, networking is the #1 activity that we like to engage in the least.

This week at San Francisco Professional Career Network we will do something about closing that gap. SFPCN welcomes back Eric Waisman of, a SF startup that enhances people's social intelligence… comfortably. Eric’s presentation last year was, in my mind at least, in our top five!

Imagine walking out of a networking event knowing that you connected with at least five incredible people… and not only connected with them, but knew that they were so excited that they were going to be contacting you!

Now envision meeting with someone influential to your career, and you are so poised and engaging that they offer you a next meeting or interview. Wondering what you can learn to be able to make these scenarios a reality?

Here are the key things we will learn: 

• The seven skills that can make you a social dynamo in any situation 

• How to build trust and get what you want, while maintaining strong relationships 

• How to build deeper rapport quickly with colleagues and with people you just met.

See you on Tuesday as we explore gaining new confidence in our social and professional networking situations. It will be fun and productive!

About Our Speaker

Eric Waisman a fourth generation entrepreneur and after a "too long" experimental corporate career in management, sales, marketing, and communication with Fortune 500 companies such as MetLife, Merrill Lynch and American Express, Eric left his power suit behind to follow his true passion: teaching communications and being social. He is a longtime student of the study of human behavior, the science of attraction, theater, music, and business.

Eric sits on the board of BookBank USA, a non-profit organization to ensure underprivileged children get books, and also serves as CCO and Head Men's instructor at Social Fluency. Eric received his bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Northern Colorado and studied business ethics and cultural studies at the University of Jerusalem. As a former punk rock  musician, Eric enjoys traveling, playing his guitar, exercising and socializing in his spare time.

Connect with Eric at and on LinkedIn.
